Oh, no, she didn't!

Tonight, we (my friend and I) went to Zumba, like normal.  We walked, which was abnormal.  (Super fun!)  We sat outside and chatted before class, like normal.  We moved into our spots, like normal.  

I noticed the sun was kind of in my eyes, which is abnormal (thanks Daylight Savings Time).  I moved to the window and unrolled the shade.  

I turned around and noticed a woman (who tends to not be very friendly) in my normal spot.  

Oh, no, she didn't!  Um, she did.  

I hightailed it across the room and danced, shook, and cumbia-ed, my way through the class.  She can have my spot.  I am a creature of habit.  Thankfully, I can let it go, and just laugh.

This made me laugh! It made me think of the conversations we have had about routine. I thought about how I told you I can't leave the house if my bed isn't made, how I fold my towels, etc. It also made me think about how we both promised to try not to do something from our routine. When we reported back to each other, we had found that we BOTH miserably failed at our attempt. Thanks for cracking me up! :)

I love your use of like normal or abnormal throughout your writing. I think we are all creatures of habit for somethings. I am glad you don't let change get you down.

How fun! I've always wanted to try Zumba. Is rhythm a must? : )

Great slice! I think we have all been in a situation similar to that before. I loooooved the "Oh, no, she didn't!"

Thanks for making me smile!
