    Slow Dance with a member of the opposite sex!

    I have 3 sisters... my parents would allow us to have parties... the rule was if you danced with someone you had to be at least a "bound volume" apart! I remember on party where I got a little to close and was rudely reminded of the "rule"... I was (am!) a sarcastic little bugger (not to mention the black sheep) and said "well they come on CD now ya know"....

    Did I get in trouble for that one!! LOL

    Well now, I once got council from the stage about my inappropriate stockings. They had that 80's black print..seam..something like that. Kind of lacy.

    Anyhoo. The elder said that it drew attention to my legs. So:

    No printed panty hose.

    could not wear shirts or hats with cartoon characters or sports figures because that is idolatry.

    Wow! So much I had forgotten. We read candy bar lables to make sure the candy contained no lethicin(sp?). Supposedly it was a byproduct of blood. I didn't eat Mars bars for a longtime.
