Table of the Day #2484

We had a day with lots of things in it, as the best Saturdays aspire to be. Oatmeal for breakfast served over cartoons; slacklining with Pearce in the park; fruit-and-nutella crepes eaten outdoors downtown; more comic book rummaging, with several treasures uncovered; video games and comics until evening fell; waltz lessons taught by Bob and Alina; burritos and Star Trek on the sofa.

The dance was certainly the most daring part of our day, as neither of us have much experience with dancing, especially with strangers. It took me some time to get used to the basic step, and then I would meet some other subtlety I needed to attend to: keep your shoulders squared, commit to the spins you suggest, don’t race your partner, keep your steps small, the movement is in your upper body, not your legs. Some of my partners said “thank you” as we finished our steps together, which seemed rather generous of them; it was fun all the same.

The sun was good to us today. I hope your Saturday was lovely as well.
