seniors' polka: just about the best thing ever

The Children's Museum, where I'm working part-time as their bookkeeper, is located in the main building of the Seattle Center, and upstairs there's the main food-court area. And every Monday around lunchtime, a little band sets up its gear and begins to play traditional dance music, and all these senior citizens get up, pair off, and begin to dance. It is absolutely the sweetest thing to watch, and I don't mean that in a condescending way at all. It's just so pure and fun, and it feels like you've traveled back in time. Today they were dancing something along the lines of a polka. Fan-friggin'-tastic.
