Back In The Game

Patty [at work]: I don't want to play basketball tonight.
Me [totally kidding]: I'll play for you!
Patty [mostly kidding]: Ok, you go.
Me [totally sarcastic]: Oh, sure.
Patty [mostly serious]: Do you want to play?
Me [still with the kidding]: Totally!
Patty [totally serious]: No, really, do you want to play?
Me [terrified with a side of excited, and also in the habit of saying yes by this point in the conversation]: Okay.

And that was how I found myself playing my first game of basketball in years, and realising that no, I am not even in the same country as the state of fitness I hope to achieve. The treadmill is getting easier, but that does not mean I am ready to run a full game.

It was Social, however, so that was good; we had some fun. AND - Guess who got the first points for our team? And it was a three, too. (Guess who also got four fouls? Old habits die hard.)

I'm going to go lie down now. For about a year.


  1. oooh, the last game of bball I played, I got elbowed in the forehead.

  2. I think it is incredible you went out and did it. Who cares if it burned, no where to go but up, right?

  3. I'm never in the same country as fitness when it comes to basketball.

  4. woo woo way to be a basketball star, haha.

  5. Woo! Go the 1st thrrrreeeeeee points!!

    You can come visit me in the country of bball fitness anytime you like... ;-)

  6. skyw got high marks in Exercise Physiology.
    I'm sure he'll be happy to give you some exercise routines.
    We stop at every bball court - right?

  7. dawn224: I elbowed a girl in the teeth, oops.

    sw&v2: the south east tour of bball courts.

    everyone: thanks for the encouragement!
