Tango: my life as a not-so-good leader

And you thought that YOU were the worst dancer in the world ?

A sardine in a can

What was I doing on the dance floor? The couple in front of me was blocked, the guy behind me kept pushing forward, at my right the chairs and tables had all kinds of pointy corners ready to hurt me.
My partner was glued to me like a remora to its shark. I was stuck. Impossible to walk in any direction; the only conceivable move was an endless giro. How could something like this have happened to me?
I had just been sitting at some table, waiting for the midnight demo by some argentine milonguero. Becoming thirsty, I made the mistake to stand up, in order to go to the bar for a beer. Got immediately captured by a classmate follower whom I hadn't noticed. And never reached the bar. It took me three snail-speed tangos to come back to my chair. There I began to chat with an argentine couple of teachers sitting at the next table.
"- Quite crowded here tonight, isn't it?"
"- Oh, nothing special compared to the Buenos Ayres milongas; For us it's almost empty here."

Damn. My trip to CITA, in March, is already booked but maybe I should reconsider.
