I don't believe the trouble is my inability to dance like nobody's watching. I have heard that advice a good deal and when I dance I find I can live up to it because anyone who would watch soon turns away and in some cases curls up into a ball and weeps. I suppose someone really determined might watch me and judge, in a way that would be harsh, but they would surely give up judging and just feel generally sad if they tried. I can accept doing things that make onlookers feel sad and a little embarrassed for me, as everyone who's seen the way I dress myself has noticed.
I would appreciate your going over to my humor blog to read more about my dance incompetence. Also over there since last week's bit about calendar-giving have been:
- The Calendar Issue, about why I don't get how they can work.
- A Few December 2013 Numbers, which aren't the ones you were looking for.
- The Problem Of The Missionary, who surely means well and makes us look bad.
- Comics And, Well, More Comics, pointing out my math blog to folks and also showing some other comic strips off.
- Peaceful Holiday Seasons, about whether the comic strip Curtis has changed the national discussion.
- Fear Of What Have You, about those people organizations fear.
Trivia: The 1938 study Toll Roads and Free Roads found that coast-to-coast automobile traffic in the United States constituted about three hundred passenger cars a day, with only about 800 people travelling from the west coast to any point east of the Mississippi, making rather pointless the proposed scheme of six transcontinental superhighways paid for with tolls.
