jill or jack

second thoughts about competing

i registered for the jack and jill competition in a local lindy hop dance weekend here in melbourne, mostly as a lark. and now i’m not so sure i’m up for it.
i have trouble with competitions generally, plus there’s the whole dancing-in-public-for-a-prize element. god, i’ve already considered potential on-somms. what should one wear for an exercise in public humiliation?
and i do have problems with paying 12 bucks for the privelage.
perhaps i’m just not carrying the right sort of ego for competitions. maybe i’m just a shy baby.
maybe i should just follow my instincts and back out now.
