But then we got a spam from Crisell headlined "Theo Sends Urgent Message to Dance World." In it, he explained, "Just this past year, I ran for a seat in the U.S. Congress—AND I love to dance!!" Then he offered us "a full-time income, a large full-time income with part-time work. Would you like another $1,000 per month, $5,000 per month, $10,000 per month, $20,000 per month???? No meetings, no staff, no overhead, no paperwork!!! Cash flows in this company in one year will be over $100,000 per month—those that get in early will become rich. THIS IS TRUE!!!" All we had to do was get in early. And I must say I was intrigued. I, too, love to dance! And this "Theo" person sounded intriguing. I wondered if he would wear his opera cape, like the one he was sporting when I hid from him at the Artists Village opening. So we went to Fiesta Latina on May 3 to see Theo dance with other students at Orange Coast College. I wanted to mock. I wanted to sit in the back row and snicker. And yet . . . and yet . . .
He was so game, in his white pantaloons and blousy white shirt, clapping his hands and frolicking on the stage for our enjoyment. And he was doing his damnedest to keep up with the quick footwork of the other male dancers, who were 20 years his junior and gay. It was touching, I tell you, and I didn't want to make fun of him anymore. Plus, I could make over $100,000 per month if I just get in early. And no overhead!
