If I Were You....

There was great excitement. Apparently the 6.45pm FCI class was to be graced with the presence of FDI aka Leon Lai aka (latest nickname), IPOD. (International Prince of Divas). FCI seemed particularly excited, and even announced that class will not start until the IPOD arrived. Even told people to reserve a spot for him right in front of FCI. Roll eyes. But before that, the whole class burst into the HAPPY BIRTHDAY song for FSI, after I wished loudly, "happy birthday". Except, I think half the class didn't know who they were singing for, as FSI clutched on and pointed to FCI as if it were FCI's birthday. (HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN, FSI, YOU DONT LOOK A DAY OVER 28)

Anyway, IPOD was late, and came in about 1 minute into the warm up. You could see the expression of delight and joy in FCI's face, to have such a distinguished guest in his class, and he was beaming more than lighthouse in a dark foggy night in Scotland. Of course, he kept making references that IIIII looked so happy that IPOD was in the class, but that was merely to deflect his own delight.

The warm up song was IF I WERE YOU, and when we were shuffling, we could see IPOD SHUFFLE. FCI was in his elements though, and when the chorus came on, with "If I were you", he said, "yeah, if i were You, How I wish!" this uncharacteristic wit really cracked me up and left me sniggering for the remainder of the track. Mrs Lionheart look suitably amused too. I dunno what possessed Lionheart to leave his normal position, but he moved to the right corner of the class, with his favourite disciple, Certifiable Steve, in tow.

It was a great class, by any yardstick. FCI was in his elements, and when he paused to see if people remembered choreo, we could just look to IPOD as a reference. He made several more jibes at IPOD, but they are too numerous to recount and recall. Ladynina and IPOD commented that it'll never stop. I suggested to IPOD to accidentally give FCI a kick. Oh, earlier on, FCI had told the tall girl to make sure she round houses me. She very wisely said, "on what basis?".

There were loud groans when people recognised the choreo to Ricky Martin's She Bangs, when FCI was demonstrating it. I love that track, it reminds me of exFCI. I love the lost expression on IPOD's face for track 8, Creature of the Night...he looked as though he was completely unfamiliar with it. It is FCI's trademark though, never heard anyone else do it. And, I guess IPOD couldn't see from where he was, coz he was doing jabs while FCI was doing hooks. Took him a while to figure out the jabs from the hooks. Snigger.

Kudos to IPOD for being such a good sport, as always. He really is such a gem!!!! And BRAVO (this time really to FCI, and not to Andrea Bocelli) for a wonderful class. My plantar fascitis is killing me today, but it was worth it.

FBB...Had no choice but to go to the right hand side of the studio. The usual side is just too overcrowded...left side heavy. Was "edged out". Hehehe. But definitely regretted my move, as I spent the rest of the class trying very hard to fend off Certifiable Steve, who was screaming right into my ear....sheeesh..Apart from that, damn gud class. Had a great laugh...
