The Thoughts That Make a Lesson

7:52 AM Edit This 20 Comments »
I took my first "real" ballroom dance lesson last night with The Pilot. (I've decided to call him The Pilot. It's so much more romantic than Mr. Airplane. I have no idea if this deal is romantic or not, but a touch of the drama appeals to me here.) And let me tell you. I'm good at it. Like really good at it.

So good, that during the lesson, you'd never believe the things going through my head. "Don't knee him in the goods. Totally don't knee him in the goods." and "Oh my God. I'm sweating. I don't sweat. I hate to sweat. This is SO not good. I'm sweating." and something like this. "I'm dancing. I'm totally dancing!" and "If I practice enough, I'll be a professional and I can quit my day job and wear fancy shoes ALL THE TIME!" and "I really like this." The last thought being the best one. I DO like it. And I AM good at it. And as long as I keep my knees from his nether regions, I don't care if I step on his toes. And I'm pretty sure he doesn't either.

AND, we're going dancing on Friday night!

I am totally fascinated by ballroom dancing. I don't want to actually try it, but I really want to wear the dresses and the shoes every day because what's better than sequins and feathers?

Nothing.

PS: I like The Pilot better too. It's way sexy.

Kristen said...

You can picture me wearing sequins and feathers all the time can't you?

I think I'm actually going to start doing that. Life is too short, ya know?

carrster said...

Sounds awesome!! and very very fun!

Kate said...

Crissy? It's my life's dream to wear feathers and sequins all the time. You're right. Life IS too short.

Jamie said...

Um. Fun. Seriously, fun. I want to go ballroom dancing on a pseudo date.

And yes, The Pilot--much sexier!

"Don't knee him in the goods. Totally don't knee him in the goods."

I hope all women live by this rule... very important.

BrianAlt said...

Yay! Have fun!

Lemmonex said...

You are such a hot piece. Go get it!

Summer said...

Well that's settled. We're all wearing sequins and feathers to work tomorrow.

I would pay good money to see someone get kneed in the twins on "Dancing With The Stars"....

LiLu said...

I ballroom danced in a musical once when I was ten. That counts, right?

Pssst. I will be expecting an email shortly...

JoLee said...

oh, I can just picture you all fancy with sparkles and heels and prancing about the room effortlessly on the arm of The Pilot.

instead of counting. 1...2...3...4...
you'll be chanting.. do...not...hit...nuts.

JP is a wise man.

I agree that even if dancing itself weren't fun, it would be worth it for the shoes.

Dingo said...

And then you and Barbara Eden can host dance competitions together! She's still alive, isn't she? If not, the dance competition judgeship is all yours!

Jen said...

Loving it! Dancing is one of my favorite ways to exercise and have fun. Now this pilot, are you telling us more about him?

stoogepie said...

I'm not sure whether he yet deserves to be called The Pilot. Yeah, you were a good dancer, but how was he? Has he earned his wings?

Of course, if you did knee him in the goods and he acted like he didn't notice, then it's fine to call him The Pilot no matter what.

Captain Crab said...

Cool! Dancing with the Pilot!

Which is a much better name than I have endowed on him, "South Dakota Steve".

We need to have a Pilot meeting soon to discuss this!
