As I'm sure is evident by now, I love pickle ball. What I don't love in the hours that pickle ball people tend to keep.
I am not a morning person, or to be more accurate, in the morning I don't want to be around persons at all. No matter what time I am up, I need a few hours before I have to speak or think or be nice to others.
So many times, I opt out of playing pickle ball at TT because quite frankly they are out playing at a time where my brain and body are still saying "Huh?".
Because I love Daryl and Diana, I pushed past my physical and mental limitations and was out on the court at 9:30 am. They bought us a really cool coffee and hot drink machine for Christmas so the least I could do was drink three cups of it in order to play with them. Not really, I did have one cup though. Three cups makes me really, really mean and that's not a great thing when combined with my morning anti-sociableness.
I am mostly writing this to say that within days they are playing very well. They can hold their own quite well against us. They were supposed to have a bit of a slower learning curve so we could feel better than them for just a short bit and feel really good about helping them get better. Guess not.
Oh yeah, actually I am mostly writing this not to brag on them, but to pat myself on the back to say how loving of an act it was to play with them this morning.
I am guessing they are the ones that felt they were acting in kindness towards me instead though. I was pretty cranky. I realized just how much we do love each other. I put up with people breathing and talking. They put up with my snarky, same clothes as yesterday wearing, unshowered, hair sticking up all over in some spots and severely matted to my head in others self. Really, if that isn't love than I don't know what is. Oh, the things we do for love.
Overheard while out and about today: (small boy to even smaller boy) If you keep picking your nose, you'll run out of boogers.
Hmmmm...why does this not seem to be true for my husband??????????
