A weekend of games and building ties that bind.
Friday night saw a bunch of the Messengers get together to play tennis and table-tennis. For me, tennis was a whole lot of picking up rather than the racket sport it’s spozed to be. For some reason, the flying ball kept evading my racket. Table-tennis was a little better, but I decided I enjoyed it more as a spectator sport. Then it was back to the dining table for cool and creamy chocolate fondue, crackers and dip, Moroccan Mint tea, and good conversation.
Saturday being Labour Day meant I spent most of it crashed out on my four-poster; I had never felt so tired. In fact, I still feel its lingering effects. Blame it on yesterday’s bowling.Gone are the days when bowling four games had little or no effect on our energy levels. Why, after two games, did we feel whacked? Was it because it capped a full Sunday for most of us? Or that we ate too much for dinner after? Revelation: Group bowling is a great de-stressor.
