This is what I bought today:
1. black leotard
3. ballet slippers
I bought these today because I want to start taking ballet lessons again so that maybe I can realize my dream of wearing toe shoes. Which is a dream I had when I was fourteen. But then I went to high school and got busy. And also I had weak ankles. So I eventually abandoned the dance lessons and concentrated on having crushes on unattainable boys and wrecking my dad's VW every now and then instead.
Seriously, I am an old lady now who does NOT look so very cute in that black leotard thing I bought. But ballet lessons is on my To Do list--the one I drew up when I was on that cruise in France with my parents a few years ago where it occurred to me that if I wanted to do anything physical, I ought to get busy while my pins were still good enough to hold me upright. Hence the walk across England. And the marathon. Now ballet lessons.
Who knows? I might only last a few lessons. But at least I'm gonna try.
