It’s my ballet teacher’s birthday today, so have a post in honor of dance teachers everywhere:
“You’ve gotten fatter,” my dance teacher says. She says it inaudibly because she’s sick but also includes helpful hand gestures, so between the lip-reading and the gesture-deciphering, I figure out what she’s saying without a problem.
I do the only thing I can do: I laugh and shrug my shoulders. Thank you, dance teachers, for being the same the world over.
