I was at a dance once, and we were quite happily dancing "The Saint John
River" when, suddenly, a phone rang. It was for the first man, who was do=
ing
"dance down the middle and up" . He reached into his sporran and answered
it. We all chuckled as he red-facedly spoke into the phone: "Uh, I'm danc=
ing
right now. Yes, dancing. Listen, I can't talk right now, can I call you
back?" He did apologize afterwards, said he'd forgotten to turn it off.
I suppose that emcees will have to remind people to "please turn off your
cellphones" at the beginning of the evening?
Cheers,
Colleen
