i love dance music, and i love to dance to it. i think those of you who have been at events like the Flyers awards party know that. yet I felt completely out of place and out of sorts at the Flyers’ salsa night the other night. I just couldn’t get the steps down, no matter how hard I tried, even when another teammate tried teaching me. Finally I was like “forget it” and was more content to just observe while sipping a glass of sangria. I’m probably better off sticking with things that I can do right on the first try…like running a marathon 😉 (Think I also just felt “off” that day…rainy day, Monday, bad work day.) But still…dancing is much more fun and enjoyable when there are no rules, no steps to memorize, and just go with it.
But it seemed like the scene that night seemed to resemble my dating life in general. First off, too many women, not enough men (representing how much I need to compete.) Those who can’t do, stuck on the sidelines, those who can do, get the attention, get the guy. I even said to my teammates that night “I bet this would be so much easier if I had the right partner.” So there you go. Where’s my dance partner? I ain’t getting any younger…
(Yes, I can probably come up with dating analogies for anything. Don’t make me repeat the running shoe analogy.)
on the topic of running, I still have not run a step since November 5th. it’s not due to laziness, and the legs feel fine…just been getting home way too late in the evenings, and am just tired all the time so AM runs are not happening. this cannot continue though…not if I want to still be able to fit into my clothes…i hope to get something in this weekend!
