Think about it. Starts at 7.

there were lilies of the valley,
and the tulips were planted, just waiting for Spring.
Fortunately, the azaleas weren't trying to make an appearance yet. I remember one year when it got unseasonably warm before Azalea Trail, and the gardeners at Bayou Bend had to run out and put bags of ice all over the beds.

You look like an idiot."
The main reason I don't work out (aside from sloth) is that it's just so damn boring. So I had this idea that I would try a new workout every week to combat the boredom and possibly find something I like to do. I had not acted on this resolution, of course, because of the sloth thing. But Saturday night my friends Dawn and Sophia announced that they were going to a Zumba class at the Y on Sunday afternoon, and I was really out of excuses. So I went along.
I found that the easiest way to get through it was to stand directly behind somebody, so I could see the instructor while not having to watch myself flailing about. Sophia and Dawn fared a little better, which I ascribe to the fact that they are actually sexy Latinas and not, you know, me. I think I should try some kind of dance workout for the neurologically challenged. So ... line dancing?
