An (online) conversation with my very amusing friend, a tango dancer born in Buenos Aires, and currently living in Europe.
Name withheld to protect the guilty. ;)
J: The best part of dancing with porteñas is they way they connect so completely with me.
J: They are so close, so completely connected, it feels like they are trying to dance inside my shirt.
J: There is nothing the same.
Me: Wow, that's very close indeed.
J: Yes. And why I am so deeply sad.
Me: Because you're in [European city] right now?
J: No. Because they don't actually want to dance inside my shirt . . . .
J: . . .
J. I feel so used . . .
J: hmm. I sense you do not sympathize with the heavy burden I must carry.
