Ballet Squid Quickie: Denis Is Officially A Dancer
Today, Denis went to see our lovely doc, Dr. B, for a checkup. He reported some pain he’d been having in his right foot*, so she x-rayed it.
Fortunately, no broken bones or anything appeared. Dr. B said it’s probably mild arthritis, and said it might eventually (far down the line) interfere with his dancing.
Denis said that when that day comes, he’ll probably go for cortisone injections before he’ll quit dancing, and that he intends to keep dancing for as long as he can.
In this bizarre “only dancers and athletes think like this” kind of way, that made me so proud ^-^
I think I can officially call him a dancer, now!
*Denis observes that he’s probably had issues with his left foot for a long time, but never really paid attention to them until dancing irritated the joint in question. Evidently, the same spot has long been a spot where his shoes rub, but only on the left.
Also, though I initially said it was his left foot, it turns out that left was wrong and right was right. D’oh!

So like a dancer, at least those I’ve known. And also like a skater, which I was for many years!
Indeed! I think it’s endemic to all of us who are really driven by some calling that involves physical activity.
