Dancing Like Ginger Rogers

by Thomas Bowling

My wife and I traveled to Orlando several years ago. We spent a week at The Grand Regency. The Hotel is everything you would expect from a first class resort. On our third evening, we explored a part of the Hotel we hadn't seen yet.

We wandered down a long hallway. It was off-season and the hallway was empty. We came to a beautiful stairway leading to the next level. The stairs had a string of lights on each riser. My wife said, "The stairs look just like the ones Fred Astair and Ginger Rogers dance up in the movies."

I said, "Go ahead, give it a try."

She said, "No, if anyone saw me, I would die of embarrassment."

I said, "No one's around. Don't you want to dance like Ginger Rogers?"

"She's my favorite. She was so beautiful. I always wanted to be her when I was a little girl," she said.

"Go ahead," I said. "Just for tonight, be Ginger Rogers."

She put her fears aside and danced up the stairs. She was beautiful. When she got to the top, she heard a man with a thick German sounding accent.

"Goot evennig."

She turned around and bumped into Arnold Swarzenegger and Maria Shiver.
