If you don't have the posture, you may as well go next door and take swing dance, I said. You can hunch over all you like there, but not if you are going to dance flamenco. Now everybody say it once for me, please, I said, as ornery as anyone was ever going to be there. FLA-MEN-CO. If you want to see flamingos, go to Florida!
From the novel "Peel My Love Like an Onion" by Ana Castillo
