Disco BallA memory burned in to my brain.  Seventh grade.  My first dance, held in the cafeteria.  Low lights, disco ball, great music. 

Then a boy actually asked me to dance!  Do you remember the song, “The Bump?”  Face it, it was great at the time…. so off we go, weaving through the crowd to the middle of the floor.  “Doin’ the bump!” (bump one…)  “Doin’ the bump!”  (bump two…)  Doin’ the bump! (POOT!) 

YES!  On the third bump I passed gas!!!  He literally stopped in mid-bump, stared at me and walked away.  There I stood, alone in the middle of a sea of dancing teenie boppers… mortified!
