I've got Zumba on a holiday...

The Temptations got nothin' on my Aqua Zumba classmates and me. It was a cloudy day even at 6 a.m., and the health club had long advertised no classes on Christmas Eve, but wishful thinking and the fact that our favored Aqua Zumba instructor had told us she'd be there was enough for seven regulars and one newbie to show up at the pool this morning.
