tonight, i plan to take a big leap backwards towards my youth. i'm going to go buy a pair of ballet slippers. i woke up the other day with the biggest urge to take a ballet class, perhaps due to the dancing sheep in my dream (thanks to the thoracic strain nighttime medicine), and it's still there, deep within my belly. so after the last of this training, i'm going to head over to san francisco dancewear and pick up a nice, clean pair of sanshas. after that, i'll need to find some courage to actually go to a class. think i can buy that? maybe i'll go to the zoo and chat with the lion.
