We’ve been married 27 years. We have a tune that we dance to. It’s not real music. We don’t even really like the dance step, but it is a routine we have created that is the same every time the same music plays.
What if I change the music? What if I refuse to move the way she has grown accustomed to me moving? What will happen then?
I will step on her toes. She will walk on mine. We will bump into one another with the awkward motion of beginners. It will be painful, awkward and embarrassing.
On the other hand, the most fun we had dancing was when we were just beginning. Maybe changing the steps would bring back the fun of the first few times dancing.
I’ll go surprise her now.
