By Mickey and Penny
I had been separated for awhile and my Stepmother bought me a membership to a Shag Club here in town so I decided to go one night since I had also been taking shag lessons, but was not interested in meeting any men at all.
I walked in the door and my StepMother introduced me to this man named Mickey who told me he had just started taking shag lessons and asked me to dance so I did even though I really didn’t want to.
But much to my surprise he was a really good dancer so we really hit it off and began talking. He asked me how old I was and I was 33 at the time and then he procedded to tell me he was 50 and had three kids which I about fell over because he didn’t even look 40 to me.
I had decided then that I really didn’t want to have anything else to do with this man, but a slow song came on and he asked me to dance and once we started dancing my heart started beating 90 miles an hour. His moves made me weak.
We then met at the club that following Friday and hung around each other and then he finally asked me out for coffee which we went to the Waffle House and that is where it all began. We talked for hours and really got to know each other better and I knew then I had feelings I had never had before. The next week he came to my house and that was the night I fell in love and we have been together ever since.
We will be celebrating our 2 year anniversary on May 25, 2004 and this was a very unexpected love that neither one of us was looking for but we are so glad we found each other. I love him with all my heart!
