    :))) the above are very true... I've lied many times just to stay home on Fridays, for instance, 'cause I went Salsa dancing on Thursday (the best day to go Salsa dancing in my city) and I could barely keep my eyes open... coffee wouldn't help anymore... neither would RedBull... :))

    1. You vividly remember your first experience with Salsa and how you fell in love with it.

    I think scared out of my skin would be a better term, but yes, I was hooked. ;)

    2. When someone mentions the word “salsa”, you immediately think of the dance instead of the tomato-based sauce people dip their chips in.

    Yup!

    7. You get caught watching Salsa clips online at work.

    No comment!

    8. You never listen to the radio anymore because all you listen to are Salsa CDs.

    Definitely!

    9. All you friends will listen to when you go in their car is your Salsa CDs.

    I made my friends listen to last time I drove to lunch! Ha! :)

    10. When you listen to techno, hip hop, or other popular music, you try to find the beat of “La Clave.”

    YES!

    11. You cruise downtown blasting your Salsa music.

    Well, I keep it down so I can hear it...;)

    12. Your neighbors are wondering what the hell that is you are playing.

    I'm sure they are...I have a habit of blasting Merengue and Bachata at odd hours...

    13. You sneak out to your car during working hours just so you can listen to a few Salsa tunes.

    45. You walk into a club and everyone there is like family to you.
    That's a stretch, but I've become a regular.

    Nope, I always buy orange juice, but the bartender knows me and when I walk up he always says "another OJ for you?" :)

    48. Salsa lessons and club cover fees are now a permanent part of your monthly expenses.
    Darn straight!

    49. You used to be shy, but you are becoming increasingly confident, popular, and willing to show off every chance you get!
    I'm not much into showing off, I dance...

    50. You cannot imaging life without Salsa.
    Is there such a thing?

    Oh yeah...all the time...

    54. You are on the web all day long visting Salsa sites (and posting on Dance Forums!)

    66. Your shoes are worn out from spinning so much.
    My shoes are starting to fall apart!

    70. You become jealous when watching your dance partner, whom you have had no relations with, dance with another person.
    Well...I do get jealous time to time watching one of my favorite people to dance with dancing with someone else..I'll admit it. :evil:

    Never watched it in the first place. Huge waste of time!

    75. You decide the only man/woman you will marry has to be a Salsa dancer!
    No, I'm much more opened minded than that. Who knows what the future will bring. ;)

    2. When someone mentions the word “salsa”, you immediately think of the dance instead of the tomato-based sauce people dip their chips in.
    Always doing a double-take in front of the supermarket salsa dip shelf.

    10. When you listen to techno, hip hop, or other popular music, you try to find the beat of “La Clave.”
    My NDSHH (non-dancing, salsa-hating hubby) is sick of me saying "oh, you could salsa/merengue/cha cha to that one".

    13. You sneak out to your car during working hours just so you can listen to a few Salsa tunes.
    No, I listen to them on my PC.

    21. Your family does not understand what you are ranting and raving about.
    Pity them... they just don't know what they are missing.

    31. You own multiple pairs of dance shoes.
    No, but I'm thinking about treating myself to a pair from Heavenly Dance Shoes for my birthday.

    32. You dance Salsa in your dreams.
    Just last night, I was at this amazing new salsa club in my dream...

    39. You sing songs with words you don’t even understand.
    Thinking about learning Spanish so I know what I'm singing...

    42. You try your Salsa moves in a hip hop dance club with somebody who has never partner danced.
    Hey, why go to a hip hop dance club when you can go to a salsa club?

    47. Club owners hate you because all you drink is the free water.
    I'm consciencious. I buy bottled water.

    63. You install wooden floors in your house.
    I haven't but am thinking about it. Now, how do I persuade my NDSHH it's a good idea?

    65. The only time you rest in the club is during the merengue breaks.
    I dance merengue. I don't rest. Period.

Love it first .. the rest comes easy :wink:

    when you get invited to parties the host tells you,
    "hey, bring the cool latin music"

    You have practiced by yourself, in the shower(I can't beleive that's not there).

    Driving around with a personalised number plate "SALSA1" 8) !

    Bought this car with "how many musicians/dancers/musical instruments can I fit in it.....?" in mind, in case we ever go on tour *again*.

    :oops: Had perfectly datable guys walking away like this :roll: because of my addiction :oops: ........

    Had people asking if I own the clubs :shock: .

    Impossible to get through a day without running into at least one person whom I've met via salsa.

    It's not always a good thing, 'cause sometimes I need my privacy :oops:
