Adventures of a Dancing Kumquat

Following the saga of the little citrus with terpsichorean tendencies

Cheek to Cheek

The kumquat is finally writing a dancing-themed entry for her dancing themed blog!

Don't worry, she has smelling salts ready for all of her swooning readers.

The kumquat has a dance friend (the kumquat shall christen him the leek) who is fun, cute and odd. (He offered her the use of his body in exchange for doing his laundry, but that's another incident entirely. Although, if any of her readers are fretting over the kumquat's virtue and whether she took this rap-scallion up on his offer, the kumquat will thank you politely for your concern and smile mysteriously.)

The other night at a local produce dance event, the kumquat and the leek were dancing. As she mentioned earlier, the leek is odd. He is quite a good dancer, although he is not, shall we say, "conventional." At one point in the song, he turned around, and led the kumquat to turn too, so that they were derriere-a-derriere (as opposed to tete-a-tete).

Normally, of course, one would connect to one's partner with whatever body parts were touching and the follow would react to the leader's cues. However, since the leek was being silly, so was the kumquat. She was moving as she felt like, preparing for a break in the music where she could bump the leek. She was not being all that receptive to the movements of the leek's rear.

The leek realized this and admonished her with these scathing words:

"You're not following my ass!"

Man, these spam-meisters don't quit.

So, is this how the Kumquat injured her leg, in this Dancing With Vegetables episode?

The kumquat didn't really injure herself. It's just that the kumquat's knees are a little bratty and from time to time they like to malfunction for no discernable reason. They're kind of annoying that way.
