back in high school, some friends and i put together a swing dancing club. the clumination of our efforts was a swing dance in the gymnasium.
in my opinion, all those flash dance moves look all the more impressive when the lady is wearing a skirt, so i included that (and bloomers) as part of my get-up. the skirt was only knee length, but it was a wrap-around sort of deal.
well, during some crazy move, my dance partner stepped on the one string that held it all together. (really, why wasn't there some sort of back-up in place?) as he lifted me back up, my skirt went down to the floor and he dropped me almost immediately.
it was a quick fix to put the thing back on and i wasn't all that embarrassed since i was wearing bloomers and i'd been basically flashing those all night anyway, but my date was absolutely mortified and refused to dance with me ever again.
