I am the champion

So Justin and I started playing racquetball about once a week right after Christmas break and every week, I do pretty dismally. It's no surprise really- Justin has played for years and I have played for, well, since right after Christmas break. But today, my friends, today the tirade ends. I won, fair and square, the last out of the 4 games we played today. I know. I'm awesome. And Justin wasn't even trying to lose or hurt or playing left handed or anything. Yes, I just won because I am that good. I was so excited, I seriously considered calling my family to announce the news even though it was 10:30pm their time (I couldn't quite bring myself to do it). So instead, I announce it to the cyber world, who I hope will respond with the sincerest of congratulations. Because let me tell you, that might be the only thing that will help heal my now abused and broken body.

Erin, I would like to offer you my sincerest congratulations. That truly is a triumph. Last summer, Jeff decided we should play tennis together. It was . . . interesting. And by interesting, I mean it was the most humiliating thing I've done in my life. He even arranged A DOUBLE DATE with two, like, professional tennis players. It was so embarrassing . . . everyone there had played for years, and I still wasn't sure if I was holding a tennis racket or a snowshoe. Horrible. And his bribe of buying me a cute tennis skirt if we played ten times together was clearly not enough to bring me to ten games, because I only made it to like three before I quit.

I feel bad that no one has congratulated you yet. So I will do it for you. CONGRATULATIONS! ha ha.
