(nablopomo 3) A friend from UVic asked "would you like to go play badminton"? This is not something that I'd ever considered doing, really, but I'm always up for a lark, so I agreed. We went to a drop-in session yesterday afternoon and it was GREAT fun. The irony is that my friend had to stop after one game because her neck was hurting, and I enjoyed it so much that I stayed for three. I was very tired afterwards but I feel okay today. This may become a regular thing, who knows! (I still haven't looked in my hip owner's manual to see if badminton is on the approved list; indeed I have a sneaking suspicion that it may not be...) Strangely, my hips and shoulders are pretty much okay, but my back is sore.
