Is this everywhere, or just at Lincoln Lutheran? The girls get dressed up for the dance. They buy nice shoes. They wear the shoes to the dance. They get to the dance, go to the bathroom, take off the shoes and dance. (Lauren told me the shoes were all piled up in the girls’ bathroom, and she took a picture as proof.) A few hours later they put the shoes back on and go, one would like to assume, home.
Every dance at Lincoln Lutheran is like this. Well, the High School dances anyway. At the middle school dances the shoes tend to stay on, because the girls might have to beat you in dodgeball after they dance with you.
A few dances ago I wanted to see what it was like, so I took my shoes off too. It was sort of liberating.
