Jig


Literally kicking up their heels. I especially like her striped socks.

What a gorgeous picture! I wonder if she made that dress. I'll bet she did. And I want those shoes badly.

If she didn't, someone she knows did.

This makes me think I need to steal my grandma's pictures and scan them.

Maybe she's really the Wicked Witch of the East. This is pre-housedrop.

These pictures... I can't stop this steady, measured laugh that just creeps out of my chest and lands all over the air. The bearded man doesn't even PRETEND he's having a good time with his face, but he's still gettin' jiggy. And these comments make me laugh even harder. I'm getting squinty!!!

You know, if you look at her hands, I suspect she is holding up an imaginary ball gown.

she may also be snapping her fingers. My grandparents used to get down like this, and I remember fingers snapping...

That could be, too.
