If there is one thing that Shaun and I are good at (or at least always trying to improve at) is stepping out of our comfort zones. Shaun's zone used to be pretty small while mine has always been a lot bigger as I am all for making an ass out of myself. But I am happy to say that Shaun has caught up and is making an ass out of himself on a regular basis as well. What does all this babbling lead to? It leads to the above post topic: salsa, which we did tonight. One of Shaun's teammates is an amazing dancer who gives lessons along with his wife so we took the opportunity when he asked the team if they were interested in joining along to add another way to make an ass out of ourselves. Now I am not going to toot my own horn and say we are these awesome dancers, but both Shaun and I can hold our own. FYI, we have been known to shut down weddings... on numerous occasions. Well tonight I found out 2 things: we dance way better with a few drinks in us and being in a well lit gymnasium is the equivalent to a neon sign over our heads saying 'we are white'. But all clumsiness aside, it was a great night filled with laughs and many memorable moments. The highlight of my night was after we had switched partners, my new partner told me I needed to loosen up. A bold statement coming from a man that needed to to 'loosen' up with the deodorant since he clearly didn't use any before the lesson, or in his lifetime for that matter. We left tonight running the steps through our heads and looking forward to next week for round two...and a little redemption.
