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

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

Did you gain weight? 

"Did you gain weight in May ?" is the first question I asked to my regular, local class partner. She didn't, and seemed half puzzled/half offended. But I did not want to be mean, I really felt I had in my arms somebody heavy and difficult to move, and I did not have this feeling before.

But then, for one month I've been practising only with young, light professional dancers...

You get a gold medal for bravery!
 
This is a new low for Pablo. The folly of commenting on a woman's weight is such a cliche that every adult male must know how boneheaded this is. What's more, Pablo not only gratuituously implied his partner's weight gain, but he made it one of the first things he said.

I'm surprised she didn't ask him if he'd gotten even dumber in the month he spent in BsAs.
 
I can imagine her face when you said it! Is she still dancing with you? :-D

Un abrazo,

I got the same feeling two days later when taking another class with another regular partner. Only then did I realize that I was having weight-lag because of the weight difference between BsAs and here.(like I was having jet-lag because of the time difference). I asked her all the same, just in case, and she replied she was at her usual 127 pounds. No offense taken, both of them understood it was a sincere, technical question; both of them are still inviting me.
