That's not Spirt Finger...

Hola. I am in such a Latin mood today because last night my lovely wife and I started dance classes. Some coworkers asked me if I would be interested in joining them in a Salsa and Merenge class and I am not one to turn down an experience. We are now committed for 10 classes of booty shaking fun.

While I pretend to be able to dance and have wicked mad skills at the Dance Dance Revolution, I am not one to claim rhythm. Last night we learned the basics of Salsa and after an hour and a half they had us sidestepping, cumbia-ing, and spinning. It was slightly awkward towards the end though because we had to switch partners with every single person in the room so I was dancing with 9 different women that I didn't know.

I am definitely going to have to practice all week to keep the steps down. But, by the end of this I will feel like Patrick Swazie. So you better leave Diana alone cause "No one puts Baby in the corner".

That is all,

Newt

Could you please contract Erin or Cousin Kristy to come & film you dancing? I would be forever in their dept because I know how you look when you try to dance normal (knees slightly bent & oddly humping the air) so I can't imagine what you look like form dancing!!!

I accept filming responsibilities - that camera might as well get some use! Besides, these memories should be preserved forever so we can always pull them out when a laugh or two is needed.

I just wish I was there in person every week!

Ooooh good call Cousin Thomas...I would like to get that on film! Erin and I can both film...that way we can get the oddness from two angles.
