I've been doing a fair bit of waltzing, lately.
I'm glad to report that I did it without putting a foot wrong, too, even though yesterday the waltzes happened to be rather complicated things by Brahms and Liszt.
Well, I was sitting down at the time, which helps.
So how do you waltz sitting down? Well, I was playing the piano (and though my feet didn't stray I can't vouch entirely for my fingers). I'm usually more of a Bach type, but the odd waltz is good fun from time to time.
Even if you don't play a musical instrument you can still waltz; even if you can't sing you can waltz (though very nearly everyone can sing); and not being able to dance shouldn't stop you, either.
All you have to do is suddenly take yourself off somewhere without a care in the world.
So, will you waltz off to the pictures?
Waltz off to the shops?
Or even waltz off to go, well, waltzing?
There is a slight idea that the waltzer is leaving someone resentfully behind to do all the work, but...
...hmm, that is a bit of a problem, isn't it.
Ah well. I suppose you could always go on a waltzer:
or perhaps waltz Matilda, which in Australia means to travel the road carrying your possessions in a bag as you go:
Extra points if can do it in triple time without a care in the world.
Thing To Do Today: waltz. This word comes from the German Waltzer, from the Middle High German walzen, to roll.
