It's a HUGE compliment, Minty, that you can be so uninhibited in your expressions of love and affection. I agree with JoJo -- Peggy should be very honored.

I love the paso doble -- the metaphor for the matador and his relationship with his cape in luring the bull. I don't know if you've ever read Ernest Hemingway, but he has written extensively about the seductive artistry of bullfighting.

While I know there are some who view the sport as macabre and inhumane, having read Hemingway <i>and</i> seen a <i>corrida</i> for myself (not to mention pros performing the paso doble), I certainly see Hemingway's point!!
There are 2 means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.
