Bugs.

I HATE bugs. HATE them. I just spent ten minutes in a war with a grasshopper that involved a broom, a vacuum, girly screaming, jumping around, scolding the grasshopper, and the throwing of shoes. Not tango shoes, of course, but still.

I was planning to go out tonight and catch a dance or two, but killing the bug totally wore me out and I am still not sure if I can relax enough to dance. Bugs wind me up THAT much.

Tell me a pretty story that involves tango and NOT bugs.

A pretty story that involves Tango and not shoes... hmmm, okay... let's see....

Once upon a time there was a Planchadora who went to Buenos Aires for the first time and bought 5 pairs of shoes at Comme il Faut and 5 more at NeoTango, and yet several more in various stores around Suipacha. Then she went back to Comme il Faut and bought more. She then went to many milongas around BsAs and did so much dancing and so little sitting that she couldn't call herself "Planchadora" anymore. So she went and got more shoes. Because she could. And she and her feet lived happily every after. The end.

How was that? :-)

oops I meant "story that involves Tango and not bugs..." (I said shoes instead of bugs. 'Sup with that.)

I am so with you on the hating bugs thing. Except I freeze up and become petrified, and am unable to save myself or kill them. Just ask Sorin..... I hope you ended up dancing to remove the memory of your bitter battle!

Here's a story: there was once a young lady who wisely stopped buying shoes so she could save her money to go to Buenos Aires and buy shoes there instead.

And this young lady knows that should her friend happen to find out that she bought another pair of shoes, that this friend will hunt her down and follow her around all day, all night, yelling through a megaphone : "stupid lady! no more shoes for you till you get to Buenos Aires!"
