Is kicking feet.
Is kicking feet and lifting one partner above one partner’s head.
Is a rodeo, lifting one partner above one partner’s head.
Is a graveyard collapse hanging limp over someone else’s shoulder.
Is modern country, not new country my tractor so yellow so sexy.
Is classical dance, an ant crawl space underground.
Is pretending to be a marionette.  Onstage marionettes look like movies.
Is ventriloquism like inserting your hand into someone else’s back and speaking clearly?
Is getting down in the dirtiest setting like being so I can’t believe what I did?
What did you do?
I washed my hair then braided it.  After braiding I opened the drawer containing a collection of scissors.
