When Desmond gave me this fan with its absolutely
unique design, he said, "Leah?"
"Yes, Dessy," I said.
"You know that old saying about it takes two
to tango?"
"Yes," I said. "I do." I noticed he had a twinkle in
his eye.
"Well," said Desmond, "when ever you use this fan
you'll remember the fact that in your case you need
only one Tutu to tango, definitely not two or
three or a whole rainbow nation of tango dancers
for that matter. Only me!"
"Okay, your worship," I said, sticking a Bishopscourt
Hibiscus behind my ear, "Let's dance."
