April Fools From St. Jo's

Normally, at this time on a Sunday, I'd be happily dancing the evening away at Scottish class on the north side. Unfortunately, the church that hosts us, St. Jo's, played a little April Fools prank on the Scottish Country Dancers. They changed the locks and didn't tell us. Ooops! So, back at home again. On the bright side, I did get to use the el ride to snork down large chunks of Anthropology as Cultural Critique, so the trip wasn't a total loss.

D'oh! Nice of them to clue you guys in. At least you got some reading done. That is what I miss about cities with public transportation. I miss being able to do something productive while getting from point A to point B.

Sometimes I think that the administration of St. Jo's forgets that we're there sometimes. Because we're nice, polite, and clean up after ourselves, they rent us their gym for an absurdly low price, and we don't often make requests of them. So maybe they changed the locks and just totally forgot that there were dancers coming in.

That's most likely the answer. Someone simply forgot. It's too bad you, and everyone else, had to make the journey (even if you did make good use of your time).

The other big problem with meeting at places that don't charge you much is usually double-booking. "You're here every third Thursday? Oh."

No one else seems to have much use for the church gym on Sunday evenings, and we're nice and don't dance on Easter. I really think they do forget about us sometimes, even to the point of making sure to save money by turning the heat off on Friday evenings for the weekend in the winter. . .

Turn the heat off--yoicks! Good thing that you're there for dancing. That might keep you warm.

On those nights, we do lots of jigs and reels, and we don't necessarily take our coats off to do them.
