      Where Did Cynthia Go Last Weekend????

      Saturday I went to the Dorchester for After 7 Productions and the Dyamond Divas Blue Jean Set w/Jammin John and guest DJ Larry Young tag teaming the box.  Is there a new dj line up???  Apparently so for now.  Next month DJ Cross will be the guest dj on the box.   After 7 also has a new member, Terrell.  WOW is all I'm gonna say.--smile.  Nice set.  Left there and went to Sweet Geogia Brown's where DJ Stevo was on the 1's & 2's.  Nice crowd.  I talked to Big Tony (CTA) and he told me that his group, The Flames, will be starting a new Steppers/House Set @ Mr. G's this Saturday and every 1st Saturday after that.  WOW!!!  See info below.  
      I got home about 2am.

      Cynt 2 Cents

      I was talking to a lady a couple of weeks ago and she was saying that she doesn't get asked to dance much.  I told her that I don't either.  It just depends on the night, where you at, blah blah.  She said "Errbody knows Cynthia Bean and I can't see you not getting asked to dance."  That's not true.  I can go to sets and know a handful of people.  Could it be because they don't know her and neva seen her dance that she is not getting asked?  Is it where she's sitting at in the place?  Now you all know that I'm usually sitting by the bar, the dj booth or in the back so I know the guys are not going to come get me unless they really want to dance with me.  There are women that strategically sit themselves near the dance floor so they can get a dance.  I'm not hating because when I first started dancing I did the same thing.--smile.  So with me and/or other women not sitting near the dance floor where we can be seen, does that make it harder for the men to come get us for a dance?  Is it out of site out of mind?  What about the women sitting right on the floor, does that make it easier for the guys to dance with them because they see them?  Plus, women today are more aggressive and will ask a man to dance.  Even when the guy is just getting off the floor and is all sweaty they still ask them. (LOL!! I've seen it happen).   My mom told me when I was younger that the man is suppose to ask the lady to dance.  Don't get me wrong, I have/will ask every now and then but not often.  I asked a guy to dance a couple of weeks ago and he said "I've neva danced with you."  I said, "You neva asked."  We laughed and had a great couple of dances.  Now had I not asked him to dance, would he have eva asked me?  Hmmm.  There are other factors in this equation like people being there with their significant others, blah blah blah.   I won't get into all that.  It's just a dance and we all want to get our Step On.  But with the ratio of 5 women to 1 manÂ…..What do you do?  They say the squeaky wheel gets the oil.  But if it squeaks too much, will you oil it, ignore it, or replace it? 
      That's Cynt's 2 Cents
