Not that I can dance anymore, but that looks like fun

I was reading Gilbert's book recently and this timing notation in cross-step polka puzzled me as well.

Rostik - it's a thing Gilbert does, but he does it inconsistently, which is crazy-making. I referred briefly to his excuse for using that count in the post that talked about the Glide Polka. I call it the "King and I" problem, and I probably should write about it at some point. It's one of the reasons you have to be very careful with Gilbert. His appearance of precision and consistency can mislead you if you don't know about these little habits of his.
