(Before anyone says it, I do love coffee, but not that much!)
A few years ago a national coffee company had an ad featuring an Irish step dancer. It always put tears in my eyes, I wanted to be able to dance like that so badly. (Side note: I've since seen that exact same dancer live in concert with The Chieftains twice! She also sings beautifully.)
Now the same company is doing an ad with a woman taking what looks like a modern dance class. I don't recognize the exact style, but it also chokes me up. I love to dance, and whatever that style is looks like so much fun. I want to dance so badly, and all my life people have discouraged me. Now my own stupid knees are locking me down.
I am trying to get these *%$# knees moving! There's no way I can dance like that if I can't get them going.
I turn sixty in a month and a half. I'm wondering if it's already too late, but I'm still trying to get them going.
