It takes two to tango at the Tuesday-night beginning dance class at Walton Community College, unless you don’t have a partner, in which case the teacher will match you up with one, but then you’ll feel like a total loser who’s there to meet other singles and fill up your Tuesday nights and not really because you want to learn the tango—and Tuesday’s a pretty good night for TV now, so just stay home and paper over your loneliness with two straight hours of Glee.
