I stood outside on the pavement, my feet refusing to move.
The house sat back from the road, surprisingly modest for the owner’s status in the community. I knew who lived here of course, and that made me twice as nervous.
My legs like jelly, my bowels turning to water, I took a step forward, and another, until my finger was within pushing distance of the doorbell.
I didn’t get to ring it.
The door was thrown open to reveal the party was in full swing.
Fifty Freds and Gingers were having a ball, and I had no choice but to join in and begin my song and dance routine from the film ‘ Top Hat ‘.
