Done and Dance -- for Josie's Two Shoes Tuesday
I will never forget that night, it was of all things, at my dance lesson for the day. We were taking a holiday, a Southern Caribbean Cruise on the ship, the HMS Queen Mary II. I was having some trouble with the Cha Cha Cha. My rubber soled walking shoes were a part of the problem as there is a lot turning to be done in that dance. At least the way we were doing it.
The dancing instructor took me aside and helped me as I had never been helped before. I don't remember a word she said. I do remember dancing with her. She followed my every move without my slightest nudge or pull. Never did she lead. I am sure she gave me good instructions because I really don't recall any troubles with my dance. I think we touched slightly quite often, why don't I remember that part better?
Besides her following my lead, I remember even better her build. She was short, of slight build, young, and very pretty. And Russian. My guess is that she weighed around ninety pounds. Very light on her feet, the best dancing partner I ever have had. She smelled good too, I don't remember any special perfume, body odor or smoker residue.
I won't forget that part of the night. Later there was a dance, the QM2 has a large ballroom with a dance floor as big as many roller skating rinks. Surrounding it are several rows of observation theatre-like chairs, behind those are many tables and chairs occupied by the dancers when they aren't dancing.
I have forgotten everything about the dance that night. And I don't remember how to dance the Cha Cha Cha. But I do remember my instructor and the events leading to the special lesson. I will always remember her and how good she danced.
I'm done with my story, let the chill bumps calm.
Have a fabulous day. My best to you and Mrs. Jim. ☺
