Also, yesterday while we were on a walk with the puppies, Leo noted the fact that we have tennis courts in our community play area down the street, and said that we should play there.
Cue my disbelief face. Because I have been trying to convince that dude to play tennis with me for 2 years now, and he always said he didn't want to because it was "a rich person sport." Now, I dunno what the fuck that's supposed to mean, and how it effects us because we totally have courts here at my work location that are free as the day is long for us to use. LOTS of places around the country have free courts. I used to play on one in Pasadena that was a part of a park by the Rose Bowl. And other ones that were a part of community college campuses both in Pasadena and in Mission Viejo. Loads of places have courts that anyone can use at any time. So, aside from having to obtain a racket and a few balls, it really is the most free sport there is, next to running.
So apparently, he's been thinking about it, and he's finally going to allow me to teach him how to play, and now we can go and play and have some fun one or two nights a week, hitting the balls around and maybe playing a match or two. WOO!
BRING ON SUMMER!
