'can i use you as a model?'
um YES TOTALLY ALL THE TIME.
i have to say that i was pretty proud that my pilates instructor selected me to demonstrate the swan. never mind that it hurts the backs of my knees, i was going to do it pointed toes and nary a wince. my ballet toes, my poker face. all necessary in pilates. what can i say, once a teacher's pet, always a teacher's pet. i don't want to show off, but hey, if you ask for, you get it.
after the swan, i come back down to earth fast (pun defiantly intended)
'hmm, you are off your mid-line.'
