He Ain’t No Fred Astaire

“Mom, if you make me sign-up for Ballroom dancing at school, I’ll be forced to run away, probably to Mexico and then you’ll be down to just 2 kids. I thought you should know.” Will-11

As tempting as this may sound, I’d really miss the kid.

  1. I wonder what I would need to sign my daughter up for to make her run away to Mexico? Don’t worry . . . I’d miss her too, I was just wondering.

    At least he didn’t hear it on the bus! Are they really making kids do ballroom dancing now? What happen to the all dreaded square dancing?


    • It’s a recommended after-school activity. The part that scares the kids off, even more than the actual dancing, is that they have to ask/invite another classmate to be their partner for the year. As you can imagine, this is torutre for most 11-year-old boys.

        That’s just not right! Is he ever going to ball room dance? Why not make him take tap dancing while they’re at it? Some schminagle thought this would be a great way for kids to stay out of trouble after school and “culture” them. Be real!


  3. Weren’t there some former football players on Dancing with the Stars? I think that makes it ok.


  4. You should send him to Mexico for a week…see how much he wants to become a ballroom dancer then..

    No, no, no! When I talked about wanting an even number of grandchildren, I certainly didn’t mean that one should be deducted! When it comes to grandchildren, the only math concept that should be followed is addition – always addition. I’m with my Will on this whole ballroom dancing situation, although Rosarito is probably very nice this time of year. Hmmm.


  6. I gotta side with Will on this one. Better Montezuma’s Revenge than a Strauss Waltz! 😀
