I have never in my life tried Zumba and until he came to visit recently, I never really had an interest in it. I haven’t seen him in a while, due to him living in another state now, teaching first graders full time, working as a bartender part time and of course his Zumba. When I did see him, I could definitely tell that his exercise was paying off.
So we were hanging out, having a few drinks and talking about old times when he jumped up, grabbed my hand and said, “Let me teach you my new routine!”
I was a cheerleader many moons ago and was excited to jump at the chance to learn some new choreography. I stood beside him in my living room, a little tipsy from one too many Sweet Tea Vodka’s and lemonade, and waited for the music to start.
He put on a remix to Tik Tok and began shaking his rock hard bootie. At first he started out slowly and was teaching me the moves, which let me tell you hurt like hell, but then he got impatient and just started doing the dance while I very pathetically tried to copy.
He would throw up his arms, swing his hips, turn around and touch the ground and I’d be just getting to the throwing my arms up part. So then I just kinda gave up and started doing pelvis thrusts towards him. And trust me; friend does not like female pelvis thrusts if ya know what I’m sayin’.
|Thrust the pelvis.|
Then every time the song would say, “Party don’t stop,” I would stop dancing and throw my hand out in front of my body like this...
And friend would say, “It says the party DON’T Stop. Stop stopping.”
I looked like a fool, I’m sure. Luckily no one was there to watch the humiliation. Except him. And now he keeps making fun of me. Then he told me that if I could get enough people, he would teach a class in my town. I looked at him and said, “What the hell would I want to do that for? This shit is ridiculous." I wanna try this next time.
And no matter how much friend tries to talk me into it, I will never ever ever take a yoga class.
But seriously, all joking aside, the reason I was posting this was to tell anyone that wants to try Zumba to do it. It was a great workout and really fun. Just don’t let my friend be your teacher. He’s kinda mean. I was sore the next day, but I didn’t stretch and I probably overdid it. Stupid delicious Sweet Tea Vodka.
