Ballet Squid Chronicles: In Which Your Humble Ballet Squid Has No Class

So tonight I set out at 6 PM with the intention of catching the 6:26 Oak Street bus to get to class.

I hopped on my bike and hammered like a madman, made it to the requisite bus stop, and then waited … and waited … and waited.

Finally, the bus showed up about 13 minutes late. Then it transported me to not ballet school and the driver said, “Well, this is the last stop!”

Turns out I’d misread the bus schedule, so it was my mistake, obviously, but a very frustrating one.

So, there you have it. This is why your humble Ballet Squid has no class this evening.

On the other hand (or tentacle, if we wish to belabor my favorite analogy), your humble Ballet Squid did burn something like 1200 extra calories riding around on the bike today, so your humble Ballet Squid might enjoy a humble dessert even though he didn’t make it to class!



So, um. That’s it for tonight. I’m still mad at myself, but at least now I’m mad at myself and eating dessert ^-^

*Since as far as I know I’m the only ballet squid at the moment, I feel it’s fair to say that I’m the most interesting ballet squid.

  1. Aww man, that sucks about missing class.

    • Thanks. Ballet people understand! 😀

      We don’t have a Thursday class, but I’m debating the possibility of hitting up the morning class on Friday. I haven’t done the morning Intermediate class yet, so of course I’m envisioning it as a class full of dancers who are way better than I am 🙂

      • I’ve never been to an intermediate class before, but after what I’ve seen some “beginner” students be able to do, I can only imagine! I’m sure the teacher – and the students present – makes a big difference though.

      • This is true! I’ve had classes with basically all of our teachers now, and Brienne once suggested that I try the Friday class on a week when I was going to miss Saturday class, so I hope I went be too far behind!

      • I’ve read online that a difference between beginner and intermediate is that in intermediate they expect you to know the moves but in beginner they teach how to do them. Besides that is there also new harder steps involved or is it faster paced? I have no idea what to expect…
