But of Course You Can Dance

It was Friday night and my friends and I were out celebrating the start of weekend. I approached a friend and asked him to dance with me.

"Sorry, I don't dance," he said with an amused look on his face.

I asked why not.

"I don't have rhythm," he said as if it was the most natural thing to say.

Fixing my eye on him I asked: "Do you make love"?

Apparently caught by surprise, my friend paused for a heartbeat and answered "of course."

I smiled not a bit too smugly and reached for his hand.

"Then you have rhythm," I said.  "C'mon, let's dance."
