The Beauty of Words - Rules of Attraction


‘Do you play football?’ Brandon asks.
Brandon is on a roll and won’t stop until he’s found the answer he’s looking for. ‘Tennis?’
‘That would be a nada’
‘Then what sport do you play?’
Carlos puts down his food. Oh, no. He’s got a rebellious gleam in his eye as he says:
‘The horizontal tango.’
Alex stands and says through chlenched teeth:
‘Carlos let’s talk. In private. Ahora.’
Brandon turns to my dad with big, innocent eyes.
‘Daddy, do you know how to do the horizontal tango?’
