On the Ninth Day of Christmas, Dante's true love gave to him ...


These ladies were all young and very hip.  Dante knew he couldn't keep them, but he thought they could give he and Sascha dance lessons.  Why not?

In fact there was a "Ball" that very night, but Dante didn't really know how to dance, and he didn't want to step on poor Sascha's toesies.  So, the nine ladies all gathered round them and they danced from morning till early evening -- taking a break here or there for some snacks and the call of nature, if you know what I mean.  They were also sure to keep well hydrated, so it was a good thing he had plenty of cold milk in the fridge.

It sure was nice to share the product of yesterday's gift with this group of young ladies -- and, Sascha, too, of course!  She's his number one lady.

So, after a nice supper of leftovers from all their recent meals, Dante and Sascha felt well-fortified and were both keen to 'rock the night away' at "The Snow Ball".  They sure had some interesting moves!

Dante, who before hadn't been too confident in his dancing abilities, now threw caution to the wind (as well as a snowball or two) and boogied down with a flourish while Sascha kept rhythm with the beat, and really got into the groove.

Sascha and Dante are getting down to the tune of "Jingle Bell Rock"

Here are the lyrics in case you want to sing along.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock
Jingle bells swing and jingle bells ring
Snowin' and blowin' up bushels of fun
Now, the jingle hop has begun

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell twist
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancin' and prancin' in Jingle Bell Square
In the frosty air

What a bright time, it's the right time
To rock the night away
Jingle bell time is a swell time
To go glidin' in a one-horse sleigh

Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jinglin' feet
That's the jingle bell rock, yeah!

After the ball, Dante and Sascha were absolutely exhausted, but it was the good kind of tired.  Needless to say they both fell asleep as soon as their heads hit their cat beds, but even in their sleep they still couldn't stop  dancing.  Ah, life is but a dream, or at least it seems so with these two!

How on earth can Sascha top this gift?  You'll have to come back tomorrow for "The Tenth Day of Christmas with Dante Sascha" to see what she gives him next.
