A group of us proceeded to the Mercury. I ran into so many people who hadn't seen me in over a month and had happy hugs for me. It was like coming home after being away! And as soon as I got into the club I started getting all these compliments on my outfit. This meant A LOT to me because I had to really work and be creative to put it together.
I have 3 pairs of PVC pants and one PVC chaps that I can't wear anymore because I'm a different size now. Same goes for 4 or 5 pairs of hot pants. So dressing in a way that made me feel sexy and confident was a challenge indeed. It felt so good to know that I was able to do it in spite of my club wardrobe being massively cut down.
After not working out or dancing for 6 weeks I expected my endurance to be poor on the dance floor. Not so. I danced and danced and danced. I kept dancing even to songs I don't like so I could get used to dancing to stompy songs as well as the swirley ones I prefer. Because when I start working as a dancer next Saturday I won't get to pick and choose the songs I dance to. I'm being paid to dance and I need to dance whether it's my kind of song or not. So it was excellent practice.
I also began to notice small groups of guys stopping their conversations just so they could stare and watch me dance. This really fed me and I put more and more into my dancing as a result. And of course the more I put in the more they watched. It's a wonderful exchange of energy. And I had all this fun without even drinking!
Oh and you should have seen sweetestkiss. She looked fabulous in her fishnet outfit. I've asked her to come to the club where I'll be working and get up on the go-go box with me. She's sexy out there on the dance floor and she deserves to be up on that stage so everyone can enjoy it!
At one point in the night a guy introduced himself to me and told me how I had made his night. I was thrilled with this! It's one thing to do something you absolutely LOVE to do (like dancing)...but it's a million times better knowing it brings joy to other people. Add to that the fact that I'm going to be paid for this kind of bliss (starting next week) and I'd say I've found heaven.
