I danced yesterday - for fun - for ME. It was so much fun. I hadn't really done The Hustle or The Samba for many years - especially just for fun. Halfway thru the Hustle - I got a horrible spasm in my hip flexor. It is killing me now and I'm limping - but it was SO worth it!
I even got to see Helen P. who ALWAYS knew how to give the perfect back-handed compliment like, "you're so pretty if only you were skinnier"! I looked great, I walked with confidence and I watched the last part of her dance lesson. Ok - the bitch is coming out... I thought it utterly ridiculous for an old lady to try to act sexy and sultry.
And then when I was doing my West Coast Swing with her watching - I played sexy with my partner - for the first time ever. The Naughty Little Minx came out and Helen P. actually gave me a real compliment on my style. How freakin' great was that??
It's going to be a lot of fun to get back out into the dance community as The New ME!
