Time Event
8:05p
Dancers at the End of Oix [27 Oix 4260]
For reasons best known to the instructors ... hah! For reasons best not known to either instructor, but lost in the confusion between them (have I mentioned recently that I detest Orren?)... the Flirtatious Dancing class was scheduled for today -- which is to say, the last day of hot Surprise -- rather than tomorrow when it wil be much, much cooler.

Thus, dancing.

Thus, to be more specific, dancing with members of the class selected by lottery.

Thus, to be even more specific, dancing with members of the proper species of the class selected by lottery.

Thus, to be painfully specific, dancing with members of the species least represented that day, because there are no other members of the proper species in the class.

Thus, to be so specific that I snort sparks, dancing with Orren as usual, selected by lottery...

Have I mentioned recently that I detest Orren?

Thus, to be specific to the fine sharp point of a fang, dancing with Tillissa.

I did not breathe flames upon her. I did not look her in the eyes and smile as we promenaded. I did not claw her forearm. I did not kiss her in the final twirl of the dance. I did not cast some sort of spell of itchiness upon her. I did not say a nice thing to her after the dance was over.

The instructors were less than pleased with me for half of these. They should have been more than pleased with me for the other half, but (have I mentioned recently that I detest Orren?) they were not.

Instead they gave a brief impromptu lecture on proper etiquette of dealing with people who have recently rejected one's advances. I tried to interrupt them, saying -- as is entirely true -- that I had not made advances upon Tillissa. The instructors -- such cruel and wicked entities both of them! -- ignored me, and traded stories of how they had insulted this or that minor noble by excessive politeness and extravagantly complementing the wrong article of clothing.

Spirshash was beside himself with snickerings.

Have I mentioned recently that I detest Orren?
