Zumba Zealot

Day 99

“How many stars did you get, Mom?”

“Not a lot,” I laugh. 

“How many?” F. persists.   

“Are you really going to make me say it?” 

My husband suppresses a laugh but fails to hide his grin.

“I got none.”  I admit.  

“NONE!”  All three boys hoot.  “You said not a lot!”  

“None isn’t a lot,” I clarify my earlier statement. 

At this Chaz loses all composure. 

Santa brought a Wii for Christmas but I bought the zumba game myself.  In the game, you mimic the dance steps to earn stars.   

The first time I did it, A. asked if I was OK.  I think he might have thought I was having a seizure.  The second wasn’t much better, but humiliation is a dish best served alone.

“So you’ll zumba with us?”  I don’t want to.  I like to shake my zumba thing in private. 

A. nods his head up and down and smiles.       

So we dance, if that’s what you want to call it.  We dance.
