Hips Don't Lie

And I'm on tonight
You know my hips don't lie
And I'm starting to feel it's right
All the attraction, the tension
Don't you see baby, this is perfection

And when you walk up on the dance floor
Nobody cannot ignore the way you move your body
And everything so unexpected - the way you right and left it
So you can keep on shaking it

-Lyrics by Shakira.

Now, the reasons I bring this song up is because I've just suddenly realized how true it is. For my dance class, I've been taught to do the rumba. We're being taught the Latin hip motion.

Here's the class description of the Rumba: Sensual, languid and rhythmic - like oozing lava - too hot!

Ahhhhh, yes, the last time I looked lava hot was when I had a temperature of 102 and was perspiring profusely from the chills. Sensual? Only when I get fucked by my engineering exams.

So, there I was, trying to convince my brain to listen to the music, to send signals to my ass and protrude it in the right direction while trying to look hot. The dance instructor asked us to imagine doing a jeans commercial for CK. I think my pose was definitely getting hired by Metamusel (the medication prescribed for constipation). After that, we were suppose to do the box step while shaking our hips to look sexy. I managed to look like I was having a spasm, and not even a sexy one at that. Now, doesn't this give new meaning to those lyrics above? Yes, I'm gonna be in her new single: Kingdom Hips.
