The Unexpected Consequences

Recommended Posts

In a line with hart's topic, but a little sillier.


I never expected when I started taking ballet classes that I eventually would own only convertable tights.


...that I would never again be able to paint my toenails (my one girly obsession) and have them look nice for more than a few hours.


...that with all the cool ways I know to arrange my hair it would pretty much end up in a bun every day.


Anybody else?

...that I would get visible abdominal muscles, which I never ever had before.


...and that I would basically stop watching tv and not miss it.

... that the music would stay so persistently in my head! (I find myself humming

tunes from class pretty often)


... that I would ever appear on stage in a performance -- (even though it was only as a

background character, it was still a miracle for me, just to be a tiny part of a production)


... that I would end up spending so much energy and money to see more and more live ballet performances

... that I'd find myself doing grande allegro down the hallway of the computer science department.


... that I'd start considering tights - which I used to hate - normal, comfortable, everyday wear, and that I'd actually feel comfortable in a tightly fitting t-shirt, or even a leo, to the point of detesting the loose ones that go with the swords class dress code.

An older woman actually made a point to come up to me in a cafe and tell me how nice my posture is. I used to be all slouchy.

That I would actually find or rediscover something as exciting as Giant Slalom skiing! (Racing)
