Over the moon

I'm taking an informal survey about an -- ahem -- incident that happened to me over the weekend.

My boyfriend and I were standing on the side of the dance floor at a nightclub, watching the crowd, taking in the scene.
We both happened to pause briefly to watch one young woman dance because she was really getting into it.
She spotted us watching her, promptly turned around, pulled up her dress and showed us her backside.
I believe the proper term is "she mooned us."
A few minutes later, she did it again.
My question: What does that mean? Should we be offended? Was she coming on to us? Just being silly?
I still have nightmares about it.

It's called being a drunken fool...

I don't think I'd be offended. She was either flirting with your boyfriend, or you, or both.

I think it's an obvious invitation to a dirty little threesome.

When you hang out with trash expect less than decent behavior.

Do you really get paid to write this stuff?

Please name the nightclub!... any place where women get really drunk and lose their inhibitions is a place I definitely want to avoid.

With a number of the comments listed above, maybe you ought to report on something other than the raunchy club scene. You can do better

Most interesting part of this post; you have a boyfriend. He must be attracted to your stimulating writing abilities.

What is the point of posting this?

Come on Sarah, we know you don't really have a boyfriend!

It was a drunken invitation... she thought she was turning you on. She was also probably mooning you and not your man.

Nightmares about a butt? Heaven forbid she saw anymore! She'd have a stroke at the Men's Club!

It's not technically mooning unless the butt is completely bare, i.e. no underwear. Was this the case?

And you have nightmares about this incident? Were you frightened by a butt as a child? What...do you dream of butts hiding under your bed or coming to get you at night or something?

Are the few readers you have supposed to take this seriously? Sorry...ain't gonna happen.

ok, i know you have seen "I Love New York" before...... She does that to the men who piss her off so I would call it an insult. If you watch it think about the 2nd time she was let down by flavor flav on the finale. thats what she did right afterwards

You know, its about time that The Charlotte Observer be a fully rounded paper in this town, and that includes reporting on the clubs, the celebrities, the good, the bad, and the misbehaving. Stop giving Sarah such a hard time.... if that had happened to any one other than the Social Scene Reporter for a newspaper, every one of you would be laughing your butts off (no pun intended). It would be a funny story you tell at your weekend BBQs in your driveway, while Sarah's out Uptown giving us the real story on all the new restaurants, clubs, concerts and happenings.... Give her a break, she's earning a living and there is an audience for this... if you aren't part of that audience.... STOP READING THE BLOG!

On Halloween weekend 2007 we were in Asheville, NC. I work with recording artists in a number of ways and had my camera with me.

It was 1:30 in the morning at "Jack In The Wood" and all of a sudden a woman's voice hollared out: "Hey Baby!" I thought the woman was yelling to Hick'ry Hawkins who I was working with. No one paid attention until the woman then yelled "Hey... you with the camera!" Yep that narrowed down the target at that point.

As we all turned around this woman jumped out of her Volvo station wagon, bent over at a 90 degree angle and then shaked her bare behind at us.

Hick'ry Hawkins looked at me and said: "Hey brother... aren't you gonna take a photo of that?"

I declined. After the young lady was upright and somewhat covered, then I took the photo and posted it on Myspace as I knew people would not believe me otherwise.

Then again I am 52 years old and have seen plenty of "moonings" in my time.

It's no big deal.

The odd thing is that she mooned you twice. Once is good fun. Twice? No. In the animal kingdom, I believe this is called "presenting."

She was obviously giving a big ole F U for staring at her.

It's the PARTY beat. Stop taking it seriously, everyone. It's not as if she's reporting on Vilma Leake's delinquent taxes. (Oh, that's right, NO ONE was.)

And I actually thought this topic was going to be about the new Dueling Piano Bar uptown(called "Howl at the Moon).

I was so wrong!

First, Sarah, keep up the good (and funny) work. The 'nightmare' reference: hello kids, it's called hyperbole, and look it up if you need to. And, for those that want pics to 'prove' it. Yeah, right. Probably more like a screen saver. Geesh. Vinnie

Once again, the uptight prudes in this town rear their ugly heads. Keep up the good work Sarah. It's good to know some people in Charlotte know how to have fun.

I hope these women who did the mooning used Massengill!
