“Salsa is a sexy dance,” says Guy I Just Met.
“Yes. Yes, it is,” I reply.
“Have you noticed that?”
“I’m sorry. I don’t want to be rude, but I can’t talk about salsa anymore. I spent two years writing a book about this dance. I didn’t publish it. (I’m getting around to it) The point is that I spent a lot of time thinking about this subject matter. So, I might not be the right person to talk about it with at a salsa club.”
And that is how I completely alienated a would be reader for my non-existent book. No wonder I’m not a celebrity.
Just for today, I can learn to be less honest.
