I wish I could tango.
I wish I could tango like this sensual version starring Antonio Banderas from the movie Take the Lead.
Or Jennifer Lopez teaching Richard Gere in Shall We Dance.
Or this Argentine tango with Nicole Scherzinger and Derek Hough from Dancing With the Stars.
And so, you wonder, why don't I just take lessons?
I have bad knees, creaky joints, and I'm clumsy. My lack of coordination is legendary. I trip and fall down when there's nothing to trip over.
Back in disco days, when anyone could stand on a dance floor somewhere near another person who might be taken for a partner, wave her hands in the air, and sort of keep time to the music, I managed to land on my rear end in the middle of the floor.
But the tango...with Antonio Banderas...I wish...
