Dancing with Emmitt

Help! This is an emergency!

Want the number to call to cast my vote for Emmitt Smith and his partner Cheryl Burke before tonight’s Dancing with the Stars finale!

One thing about this new 40-inch flat-screen HDTV– I end up spending entire days on the couch, as I did yesterday. Did not grade a single paper. Instead, sat as if mesmerized, examining fascinating skin pores during close-ups of Anthony LaPaglia on Without a Trace (re-runs on TNT) and Hugh Laurie on House.

Last night, found myself watching Dancing with the Stars with bated breath as the two final pairs–Emmitt and Cheryl; Mario and that Russian lady with the the rather harsh mouth– duked it out by displaying their mastery of three different dances: mambo, rumba, and “free-style”. Thought Emmitt was going to jump into my lap. Without a doubt, dimple-boy Mario had nothing on Emmitt’s fancy footwork! Found myself reaching for the phone to dial the 1-800 number to cast my vote for Emmitt and his partner, something I have never ever done in the whole history of reality TV. Hubby, however, stopped me with this trenchant warning: “You’re going to have to pay for the call.”

This morning, cringe at the thought of Mario (who, come on, admit it— I’m sure has taken dancing lessons before) taking glittering trophy home to display in (possibly) gargantuan bathroom. Immediately regret prevarication of last night and decide to be fierce and decisive! Google web sites frantically (even though I haven’t finished my lesson plan for class in xxxxxx community college, which starts in less than an hour), but, alas, cannot find listed number for the show, get only amateur reviews of last night’s “Dancing” episode. Kicking myself. And today I teach THE WHOLE DAY, cannot sneak out between breaks or even get close to a computer. Thank God xxxxxx community college faculty meeting ends at 6:30. Will rush home, see what I can do . . .
