In our group any dance that you wish to avoid is called a lemonade dance
as in "I think I'll go get a glass of lemonade instead of dancing this
one."

Here's a list of dances I have done too frequently in the past. (Note
that frequently in some cases is two times.)

Mairi's Wedding; The Sailor; Macdonald of the Isles (it's now back on my
OK list); Haste to the Wedding; Mairi's Wedding; Strip the Willow; Tibby
Fowler O'er the Glen (certificate dance 38 years ago); Eightsome (age);
Kiss me quick; Mairi's Wedding; Ca' the ewes to the knowes.

I thought of this list remembering back to the Saturday Review of
Literature during the Norman Cousins era. A large group of people came up
with their "The ten ideal classic books to have with you when you are cast
away on a desert island." After a while one person came up with "The Ten
Best classics for curing insomnia." The lists stopped.

happy dancing,
