Tuesday night in class Sabeeya was starting to teach us hip circles, so of course she had the class bend their knees, lean back pushing the pelvic area forward, and hold our arms so that our hands were face-up framing our hips. As we held that pose, before she could tell the newcomers what to say, in our most high-pitched annoying girly voices, it slipped right out of my mouth:
“LOOOKIT MAH HEEEEEE-IIPPS!!!!!”
She straightened up, whirled around, and yelled (as if she had to) “WHO SAID THAT???”
Andrea promptly threw me under the bus by saying “It wasn’t me, not THIS time!” I had the grace to look abashed.
After class I told her that I had been so well trained in past classes that it had become a reflex, then gave her a wedge of dark chocolate as a peace offering.
Moral: when you repeat a class you may know what to expect, but it can get you in trouble as well!
