Okay, so, I KNOW better than to go to Precariously Perky Julie’s class. We’ve covered this, right? I planned ahead to go see The Caring and Nurturing One at 4:30. But then I lost track of time. Nothing to do but show up for Julie’s class, knowing full well this was suicide. Lest you think I exaggerate, at one point during the class she pipes up with, “Those of you who are grabbing your heart, please make sure it’s still beating.”
Julie likes themed sets. Today’s theme was the upcoming Grammy awards. All of the songs we danced to are nominated for a Grammy. All I can say is that the music industry appears to be experiencing an up-tempo trend. Julie was dancing so fast I couldn’t see her feet move. But, she looked good doing it. I feel sure that the moves didn’t look the same from the stage. I was on the front row. Honestly, I don’t know how she kept a straight face.
There was one slow song–the very last one. It was a stretch/core muscle routine to Gravity by John Mayer. Nothing could have been more appropriate. Standing on one foot while contorting my body, using a hand weight to work my arms, and remembering to point my toes and “make it look pretty” challenged the law of gravity…and reason.
Julie has these pre-printed “Valentines Day wish cards” for us to give our significant others so instead of flowers (which will die) and candy (which will make us fat) our loved ones can get us a gadget that looks like a watch but monitors your heart rate and counts calories burned. If they make a model that has an alarm for when you’re about to pass out, I might could use one.
