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

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

another tango week-end 

Went to an afternoon practica on saturday. Not really crowded: at first I was alone, then there was a couple plus me, one hour later three couples plus me. A climax was reached with four couples plus one guy plus me. Then the reflux slowly came, and I was the last to leave.

The good news are that I got no refusal by any woman. The bad news are that I never got any chance to invite one. Nevertheless I'll keep going to this practica, to support its promoter. Plus, I always take a heavy novel-book when I go there. I read a lot during practicas and milongas, which is in any case a much better way to use my time than my usual sessions of beer'n chips in front of the TV.

Went, the day after, to an evening milonga. Joined friends at their table. Four of them. Two couples (sigh). All other people unknown to me. A few lonely women, and the same number of Kings-of-the-tango to perpetually invite them. Bad new and good news: see paragraph above.
Main difference with saturday: instead of reading, I mainly spent my time taking care of my friends' belongings (bags, clothes, drinks).

Finally, I'm being accepted in our tango community. As a cloakroom boy.
