My new dance partner; Mr. Ballet- my frenchman.The word ballet comes from the French with origins in Italian and Latin, meaning” to dance.” It is a dance for performance that has become highly technical; requiring training and ongoing practice.

The flight was over. Would I ever see him again? I really wanted to continue with this man. But with a polite “Pleasure to meet you,” and ” I hope you have a great time in the city.” Mr. Ballet slipped from his seat exiting the plane.

I was hoping he might venture to ask for my contact information. Was it too bold of me to ask him? I wanted to dance the ballet with this Frenchman, so I scribbled my name and number on a chewing gum wrapper. I handed it to him and profusely thanked him for being so kind to me.

He politely accepted it with a grand smile and said ” Merci, ma cherie. I shall call you.” Oh the sensation…I felt like a teenager meeting my first date at a recreation center, holding a dance card. I was alive, literally and figuratively. On the ground but flying high once again.
