After sending out an email about my not completely horrible performance in Long Island and my excitement over being able to wear Melanie LaPatinâ€™s dress, one of my smart-ass former West Coast Swing teammates wrote back that she was on some show called â€œWhat Not to Wearâ€ where they criticize your wardrobe? I donâ€™t have cable since if I gave myself any more reason to watch t.v. Iâ€™d get even less done than I do now, so I had no idea what he was talking about. I asked him what they criticized her for and he said he didnâ€™t remember but thought it was for wearing too much black. Which is of course the color of the dress I wore… Well, hey, I mean, this is New York! If we wore any other color, itâ€™d turn black anyway from taxi and bus exhaust and newspaper ink left on subway seats, etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. Anyway, Iâ€™m standing up for my sweet, short, sexy, ruffly-bottomed champion-worn borrowed dress!
