Last night I went salsa dancing for the first time in nearly 3 years. I couldn’t believe it has been that long.
And then I stepped out on the dance floor, and it was painfully obvious that not only was I very rusty, but woefully untutored. Thankfully, the majority of the people that I danced with were very good, gave me lots of tips, and were quite patient. I learned more last night than I have in years.
However, one individual was particularly self-involved. Sporting a suit and greased-back hair, he thought that he was an exceptional dancer. No interest in being a good dance partner, he really just wanted to show off. Unfortunately, he got a little enthusiastic, and ended up kicking my leg. Very, very painful.
As I hobbled away, I found my friends, who are regulars on the salsa scene. When I told them what had happened, they started laughing. Apparently this guy is rather…infamous. haha. Well, I’ve been initiated, I guess!
Outside of that rather amusing incident, it was fun and I’m glad I went. Even though I’m limping today. 🙂
