Doesn’t everyone?

As winter approaches, and it gets dark earlier each night, finding a means to get in a post-work workout becomes challenging. Especially because i despise going to a gym…

Rather than race the sunset, and the evening chill, whilst pedaling my ass on a bike, i remembered that Wednesday night is Salsa dance night at a local restaurant. Nice venue, demographic is comfortable*, and the DJ/dance host is wondrous…

But the place is a 30 minute drive from home. Had to work til 5:00 pm tonight, so it was a race to get home, put on my dancing gear, get the mail, and walk the dog before going ‘wheels up’ with my workout buddy at 6:15 pm.

Dance gear? For salsa, it’s just more fun to wear a strappy, swingy dress and some high heels. Oh, and then there’s my favorite salsa accessory – snap on hair. Love this shit for dancing.  Especially after a day at work, it’s the quickest – and easiest – way to doll up in a hurry!  Throw on some giant hoop earrings, and it’s a party!

Racing the clock, i still had to get Mr. Pickles out for his evening constitutional.  We were headed down the street, to his favorite dumping ground, when i passed two of the gentlemen on the landscaping crew.  Who did a double take when they saw me dressed up like a  Mexican hooker, walking my big smelly hound…

daisyfae:  Good evening fellas!  And yes, i always dress like this when my dog needs to take a shit.  Doesn’t everyone in this neighborhood?

i don't have mariah's ass... and my dog's way cooler...

i don't have mariah's ass... but my dog's way cooler...

* nice mix of young/geriatric dancers, of all skill levels. and definitely not a meat market… no Viagra dispensers in the restrooms…

  1. rob – perhaps that’s the real reason you won’t get a dog? afraid the neighbors will see you mincing about in your jammies in 3′ of snow when it’s time to walk the dog?

    alex – it’s just difficult to find a place to just dance. no judgment, no stalkers, no…. ummm…. assholes…. when i find a non-meat dance floor? it’s like winning the lottery!

    jinjir – alas, it’s 40 miles away. i suppose i could have walked there, danced for 2 hours, then walked home, but that would have me in the category of “extreme marathoner”. i hate gyms. it’s worth a drive…

    unbearable banishment – i had to go home first to poo the dog anyway… the girl was working, and i couldn’t leave him with crossed paws til 10pm. i have worn my Xena costume to the office. didn’t help or hurt my performance evaluation. sadly.

    tNb – a few years back, i lost most of my hair due to a reaction to medication. horrible feeling, to be sure, when chunks of hair come out in your hands… the “snap on hair” was a gift from my secretary – and saved me! since then? i’ve been buying it for fun! love the stuff!

  2. You need a different tarted up costume for each time you take that dog out now. First, salsa girl. Then Catholic school girl, pirate wench, sexy nurse, and biker chick. That will really mess with those landscapers.

  3. uncle keith – you are, as always, one damn fine sexy man…. we could even snap on my curly hairpiece as an accessory for your swinging meatsacks… the ladies would swoon…

    sweetlife – delighted to send a grin your way! makes me happy…

    renalfailure – the landscapers have already seen me walking the mutt in my paint-spattered sweat pants, my baggy pajamas and my biking gear. they’re immunie, i think… oh, and of course, you’re gonna want pictures. the halloween costume photos will be up in a week or two. that’s gonna hurt…
