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

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

czego chce kobieta, tego i Bóg chce 

Here is a typical e-mail exchange between the sensible me and my womanish class partner for the tuesday A.T. group class. Or so-called class partner, as she has missed quite a few classes this year.

"Hi Pablo,
About tomorrow's class, I'm afraid I can't make it. Sorry. I'll mail you when I'll know for next week's class. There is a milonga monday. We'll go there, won't we?
Have a nice week. Kisses."

"Hello,
On monday our teacher also gives a class; the level is nearly the same that our own. Don't you think it would be a better move to go there ? It would compensate for the class we'll be missing tomorrow [I don't go when she doesn't, as the class is otherwise balanced.]
Plus, I already went with you to the milonga last month, and I hit a few people's ankles with my heels. It was only one month ago, they will remember, and won't be too happy to see me coming back. [I cautiously did not mention last week's milonga, where I went without her and danced all night with a close friend of hers; this would have been asking for extra trouble]. Here is the schedule and the address of the class..."

"I do prefer the milonga. I don't have that many chances to go out!!! [her exclamation marks]. It makes no sense taking one monday class when we did not attend any up to now. And this monday some friends of mine will come and they want to see some tango and they don't dance and a milonga has a bar so it will be a more friendly place for them than a class. Come to me if you disagree, and we'll speak! [her exclamation mark]. Sorry again for missing tomorrow's class.
Kisses."

"Ok, let's go to the milonga, then."

I wonder why you put such a title for this chapter. Can you speak polish?
 
I wanted to say that when arguing with this partner it was impossible to win, in the end we would always do it her way.
I put a polish titke because my keyboad doesn't support chinese ideograms...
