I Could Have Danced All Night

The year: 1997

The place: the National Press Club, Washington, D.C.

The occasion: NPC President's Ball

Me: The Belle (of the NPC President's Ball)

I was 40 years old and this was my first-ever-dress-up-for-real dance. I was WORKING it, children.

That dude I'm with? Oh, he's incognito. Best to let sleeping dogs lie, as they say.

En fuego!
