I Got Seriously Kicked in the Ass
For the first time in a long time, I woke up early on a Saturday morning. Why? Because my officemate Ann and her boyfriend Spencer invited me for a game of badminton. They had court reservations from 9am to 11am, which means two full hours of intense (shuttle)cock-hitting action!
So we got together and went to hit the courts. The place was pretty much empty, only a few courts were taken. We easily got a court for the three of us and after doing warm ups, Ann and I teamed up against Spenz. He’s been playing badminton for quite a while now so he’s obviously the guy who could handle us newbies (well Ann’s playing a bit longer than I am).
So the following did not happen:
– me whacking Ann in the head with the racket
– Ann whacking me in the head with the racket
– Spenz whacking the both of us in the head with the racket
– Ann and I working as a team (yeah we just both say ‘its yours’ at the same time)
– me being kind with the shuttlecock
– me winning against Ann
– me winning against Spenz
– me NOT getting hit in the head by the (shuttle)cock.
Spenz seriously kicked my butt when I took over his scored match with Ann. I took over at 4-4, and after furious back and forth exchanges of hits, he won the very closely contested match at a score of 15-4. I bet Spenz that I could score more if you used your spoon! Haha! I only won back a couple of serves but my game sucks (shuttle)cock so much, I couldn’t get a groove! It’s alright, at least I ran around the courts chasing the (shuttle)cock that I think I sweated a big Bestank of perspiration (to find me, follow the trail of drops of sweat).
Anyways, I wasn’t in it for the wins or the losses. I was there coz I’m starting to love how the game makes me feel good, even if I’m really bad at it. I’m loving it coz I just can’t get enough of moving around and staying on my toes. Plus, it reminds me of the good old days where sports was my thing to pass the time.
It doesn’t matter that my ass got kicked. Coz I beat the crap out of the (shuttle)cock (see photo).
