Dancing with Marlee Matlin

by Paulo Ignazio

I’ve always had a thing for deaf women. (Any woman who can’t hear herself talk is okay in my book. Means less talking, which is great.) If I was a professional dancer paired with Marlee Matlin on Dancing with the Stars, upon our first meeting, I’d smile at her warmly and point to my feet and dance around and pump my fists (all to indicate how we’re gonna work hard and have fun, and to demonstrate my sensitivity to her deafness). She’d be charmed by me, taken with me, and eventually fall in love with me, and then I’d be set. Then I could finally do a deaf woman – boo-yah!
