Everyday Romance - Romantic Story: Ballroom Bliss

"My wife has been bugging me to take ballroom dancing lessons (for much longer than those reality dance shows have been airing!). I don't like to dance and I have no rhythm. I was afraid I was going to embarass myself (and her) so I refused. Finally my wife talked me into it. Actually, what she said was, 'The only thing I want for our 20th anniversary is to take ballroom dancing lessons together.' This time I couldn't say no.

It's hard to admit that I actually had fun. All of the other couples were nervous like I was, and many, many people were klutzes just like I was (and am). There were a few embarassing moments (for everyone) but also lots of laughs.

After 20 years of marriage, ballroom dancing lessons was a great bonding experience. I think it's because we have to work together as a team (you'd be surprised at how intimate some of that stuff is). It turns out my wife has dancing talent! It also turns out that she's damned sexy, I had no idea she could move like that. Lots of fun."
