Must have blocked that one out... okay. I'll take your word for it. (Would my child lie about something so important?)

Everytime he hears a certain song he tells me that's the song you were dancing to that night. The name of it escapes me right now. Wish I could have seen it.

Maybe it was something from Fame. I used to like to prance around the floor pretending I could actually dance.
