55 year old trucker #1:   “Boy my aunt and uncle could really jitterbug in their day.”

60 year old trucker #2:   “Yeah.”

55 year old trucker #1:   “Heck yeah.  They’d glide across that floor like a bowlin’ ball on a freshly slicked lane.”

60 year old trucker #2:  “I like ’em slick.”

55 year old trucker #1:   “You know who could really get on on a dance floor?”

60 year old Trucker #2 (clueless):  “You don’t say.”

55 year old Trucker #1:  “If I had it to do all over again I would have taken some of them dancin’ lessons.”

60 year old Trucker #2 chews up the awkwardness with the longest bite of burger ever.

55 year old Trucker #1:  “You’ve seen Dirty Dancing.  The ladies love a man that can move.”

60 year old Trucker #2 says nothing and keeps eating.
