I dream, and I wait. I keep hoping for him to stand and sing, "Come on darling, put a pretty dress on. We're gonna go out tonight. And dance, dance, dance . . " But my two-left-feet guy doesn't sing very well either, so the dream lives on.
He assures me if we lived closer to a dance studio, we'd give it a whirl. Mmmhmmm. Lucky for him, we live in the middle of a hundred acres of nothing but good farm land in the middle of nowhere. I love him still.
So, since my dream remains a dream, and I might as well dream dancing-big, thanks to Maggie I'm pondering which instructor I hope to have when Dancing with the Stars finally has a Common People Edition. Feel free to petition for that. For now, let's dream together.
First of all, there's the incredibly talented Maksim. Wow. He's extremely creative and has a fabulous accent. Not to mention, he's easy on the eyes. But unfortunately, I'm pretty sure he knows it, which is annoying. Plus, I find him a bit scary and too intense.
Then there's Tony, with an award-winning smile. He's sweet and patient, which would be extremely valuable for someone like me with zero dancing experience. A good pick.
And you can't forget Louis, a great choreographer with a terrific attitude. He seems soulful . . . I think he would understand me. Maybe.
All of these guys are obviously great at what they do. I would gladly accept any of them as an instructor (do you hear me, abc?). But . . .
My absolute favorite is Derek. Not only is his choreography amazing, but he is hilarious, goofy (most like my husband!) and high-energy (and the only of these four who was made in America, by the way). And while he would probably be exhausting, I think he would definitely be the most fun -- even if he isn't the most handsome. He manages to pull off a crazy-fun jive and quickstep with ease and then turn around and dance an elegant waltz and look masculine and romantic all at once.
So just in case abc gets smart and allows people like you and me to be stars for a few minutes, we should be prepared. Get out your dancin' shoes and take your pick.
It's Friendly Friday. My chance to get to know what you're thinking!
Who would you want to be your instructor and why?
(You don't have to limit it to my top four picks.)
Come on . . . I really want to know!
(And just so you know, my husband said he'd pick Edyta to be his dance instructor. Hmph! Or Julianne, Derek's sister. I think he better stick with Julianne if he knows what's good for him!)
