such a perfect thrill

i ripped off my shirt before kate had even left the room.

"oh yeah." i told her. "if you're going out then it's....NAKED TIME!"

she just rolled her eyes. her friend sheena had invited her to go out clubbing. i egged her for on for a total of thre point five seconds. not that that matters at all, because kate's a pretty independant person to begin with.

"do you want to come with me?" she asks, with sincerity.

and i reply with equal sincerity.

"dear, i have no desire whatsoever to go out clubbing tonight. it's not exactly..." i pause, searching for the right word. "it's not exactly my thing."

as soon as she left, i turned up my music and danced like an idiot.

"isn't this what they do at clubs?" i ask myself. and then "no. they dance. i'm not sure what you call this...but..it's not going to pass for anything more than wild thrashing. ever."

it's not like i want to be john travolta anyways.
