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

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

Question with a parameter. 

Here is an equation with a parameter:
x2 + nx + 1 = 0

n is a parameter. When it changes, the answer to the question "Is it possible to solve this?" changes too.
If n=0 or 1, there is no solution.
If n=2 there is one solution.
If n=3 n=4... there are two solutions.

And here is a tango question with a parameter:
Follower, just after the tanda: "And how long have you been learning tango?"
Me: "n years."
Follower: "Oh, I can't believe it!"

n is a parameter. When it changes, the meaning of the statement "Oh, I can't believe it!" changes too.
If n=0 or 1, it's a compliment.
If n=2 it can mean anything.
If n=3 n=4... it means you should be a better leader by now.

Yesterday I had to answer "three"...

Agree, I don't like to say how long I have been dancing. After 4 years, shouldn´t I be a better dancer? After 4 years I´m starting to realize how difficult tango is. So I say something like; "some years.."
