Why I Shall Take Up Square Dancing at my Earliest Convenience

Reason number 1: 
Petticoats.  Silver, gold, and every color of the rainbow.  Not only that, some square dancers pile on the petticoats, wearing more than one at a time for extra color.  How much fun is that?  Especially since 75 yards of fabric can go into each petticoat.

Reason number 2:
Shiny Shoes

Every child in the country who ever took a dance class has worn shiny shoes, but me?  Never, except for the time in 1968 when I went to a formal dance wearing a gold dress made by my mother, sparkly gold stockings, and gold shoes.  Not only that, but you can get these shoes in wide sizes.
