This is a line from one of the zumba songs. And I do love salsa when dancing in my zumba class. So imagine my surprise when the music started and the first song we heard was Chicken Fried by Zac Brown Band. (I only know the title of this song because my daughter knows it) That’s ok, as long as we get back to normal. But then the second song started, and it was the Cotton-Eyed Joe! Oh no!!! It is early, and I am sick. This rodeo-themed zumba is not going to do it for me.
You can imagine how happy I was when the third song started playing, and we were sort of back to normal. We had some new songs today along with some new choreography, but of course my dancer daughter picked up on them beautifully. In fact, she put Grace and I to shame. Well, at least she put me to shame!
We had fun; I look forward to that class every Saturday! Later in the day, we had family time with the in-laws at the Kemah boardwalk. Surely, I can count some of the walking there as exercise. And then when I heard salsa music playing, we couldn’t help but shake our hips! Because…
I love salsa!!
