The Roaring 20s...

I lost electricity for more than 24 hours during Hurricane Irene and I took the time to read a book that has been on my nightstand for months.  Now I'm obsessed with the 1920s...
I've been looking up drop waist flapper style dresses, something with 20s inspiration.  No not a Halloween costume
I really would like to learn the Charleston, I fell asleep last night after watching several youtube videos featuring the dance.  It looks really complicated but also kind of anything goes as long as there is rhythm.  I've been tinkering with 20s lingo, especially the phrases that are in the book.  I've considered calling R, Daddy-O a few times and managed to refrain.  It just seemed like a very "free" time and I love that flappers danced in protest of prohibition....all protests should include a high cardio dance!
This book is definitely a fun read, I'll give it a couple of enthusiastic thumbs up!
