Dutch Lock Down Day One Hundred Thirty

[Poor Old Left]

When I started dance, I took mostly ballet classes with a few modern, tap, flamenco, and jazz classes on the side. But ballet was six days a week Monday through Saturday and I was GOOD.

Then I went to undergrad at the University of Southern Mississippi and while I was still damn good at ballet, it became OBVIOUS how much I sucked at EVERYTHING ELSE.

While the program required ballet and modern, pretty much all other dance forms were optional including JAZZ.

And I SUCKED.

But first the news:

So why did I return to that jazz class year after year, semester after semester?

BECAUSE I SUCKED.

And the teacher was AMAZING.

She had a saying, everytime we did the second side and she knew it would suck – left is never as good as right – she’d lament, “Poor Old Left”

And we’d ATTACK it.

#POLITICS

Speaking of magicians…

Right after I published yesterday’s post, a friend (hi, S!) called to check in cause she was worried.

I’m okay.

I was just SUPER tired.

Also, some weird things happened that haven’t happened in a while.

But first the news:

Around five, my blood sugar DROPPED.

I was outside at the time, playing with the kids, and it dropped so hard and so fast that I had to sit down or fall over.

I sat.

I ate a snickers. Drank a full sugar soda. A cup of black tea with milk.

I sat some more.

After a few minutes of rest, I helped P take the twins upstairs for bed.

And almost fell over again.

I would’ve gone straight to bed, but I wanted to publish something. Hence the super short post from yesterday.
