    Funny is in the eye of the reader... I immediately had images of Bertie Wooster with his monocle in one eye - which fell out at about the comma. Maybe if you wrote it:

    "Ay bet whhimpay, ay'm afrayd' ;)

    (yeas, aym from Ingland, don't cha'know)

    Really she can say the most direct things and her smile and intonation make it all palatable. A lesson with her is often a mixture of scads of information, a dose of humility, and an episode of "Are you being served?" :)

    "You need to move your head with your body, you look like a chicken!"

    After that I decided to stop trying to emulate the pros after watching YouTube videos. :lol:

    Whenever my instructor says "You are so cute!", I know I've done something really stupid. :D

    But it's just so hard not to!

    Our coaches know us too well now. We'll be working out a routine or amalgamation, one of them will come over, watch us, grin, and say "Ok, where'd you steal that from?"

    DP is especially bad about that. She'll call me / IM me with "Ok, so from this, we go into that, then we do this..."

    Lots of good stuff on Youtube.

    recently, a very nice and good coach had the habit of saying "good luck" before we try something that she just showed us. It's in a very sweet and endearing way, but the words seem a little bizarre too. :)

    I was told that I often dance as if I am reading a technique book at the same time.

    I hear that one before and I must tell you you are 100% correct. Blondie has a way to tell you have done something wrong with out saying it.

    Other day, last lesson before a party that was going to be putting tables out on the dance floor. Anyway, as they start putting the tables out, they ask instructor, "Will these be in your way?" and he replies, "No, they'll never make it down there, they aren't using their standing leg.":rolleyes:

    Context: We're working on Paso shaping and posture. Specifically, keeping the pelvis forward. Every time I appell, I drop my pelvis and lose my posture.

    ::tries to lead me through part of my routine:: "Darling, whenever you do this," ::mimics my appell:: "I get the feeling you don't like me."
