i'm a sickie...sick, sick, sickie (hmm...SNL perhaps?)
OH and dance lesson last
night was wonderful - although i wasn't feeling good at all, it was so
nice to learn new steps - we did the foxtrot, rumba, cha-cha...how fun
is that? Jerry's wife teaches couples and so we were all in the
same ballroom together - and it was great..this couple hasn't been
dancing long but they are doing a good job - the wife looks great - has
the hip action and is graceful...and the man is pretty good too...and
then i was - learning the first steps to the foxtrot! LOL
but in my defense it was only my third lesson, so i'll not be too hard
on myself (just yet)...and i'm able to talk to Jerry while we're
dancing without stepping on his toes. He is SO encouraging...and
funny as well...and that helps. He told me if i'm going to mess
up - make it big!
i love watching us dance in
the mirror - not because i'm enamoured with myself, but because i can
see our feet/legs and i am amazed when mine are in time with
Jerry's! It's quite fabulous darling.
He also told me that he
teaches an 80 yr old woman! She's been taking lessons for five
years (!) and is pretty good and loves to do the rhythmic dances (latin
based ones)...can you imagine? i love people like that - who
aren't afraid to take a chance and do something new and fun.
Sometimes when you take a chance, you lose, but sometimes, just
sometimes, those chances turn into a dance!
ps. Jerry also
mentioned my shoes - i've been learning to dance in 4" heels..and the
norm for practice shoes for women is about 2 - 21/2...hmmm..
