.....is the new activity around here. Have ya played lately? It's fun!! Well, for everyone but me. Last night the boys and aaron were at the tennis court. I ventured over and watched for awhile then something happened and I got to go in and play!! We were playing doubles. I was standing across from Aaron. We volleyed for awhile and then I watched Aaron go up and hit the ball with all he had. He was trying to slam it. You know?! Get a point. So he hit it hard. He's a big strong man. I watched that ball sail across the court.....directly at me. I couldn't move or react.....so I just watched it come at me.....and then it hit me......directly on my (Goddam mother effing) throat. I bet you were thinking it hit me on my head wound from the dog collision, didn't you! I bet you thought I was gonna tell you I started bleeding profusely out of my head again. But no!! I was hit by a tennis ball in my throat. I just fell to the ground and coughed for awhile. I laid there long enough to realize that my trachea was NOT going to collapse and I was NOT going to suffocate from having a broken throat. I realized I was ok and it actually was pretty funny so I didn't get pissed that everyone was laughing at me. I laughed to. I thought about giving up my racket and going home but instead?? I played on. A whole match. It was a lot of fun! I'm not gonna lie. This morning my throat is a little sore. All those years of smoking.....and I get a sore throat from a game of tennis. Ah! Life is good! Peace and love to ya!!
