This is gonna sound crazy...but here it is...I kinda don't like the girl I play tennis with:P There, I said it. She is a mom from Australia that my coach set me up to do a drill session with once a week. I can't figure out why she bugs me...she just bugs me. Does this happen to you?
I don't get the impression she particularly likes me, and I do a pretty good job of hiding the fact that she bugs me. This week, not as much. She just kept asking me "what I want for Christmas", and telling me "how mad she would be if her Husband didn't buy her ____.", and "he better buy me something or____."...Whatever.
Now, don't get me wrong. I am not a Scroodge McDuck. I'm just not so into Christmas. Yes we will get a tree, yes there will be presents under it, yes I like presents. That being said, I am not pining away hoping someone buys me ____.
I don't know, maybe it's because I spent 15 years making trader money and buying myself whatever I wanted, when I wanted. Maybe it's because I moved three times in the last three years. I don't find myself wanting stuff. I have kind of become a bit of a minimalist.
Why does this girl bug me so much? I am in way better shape than her. She does hit the ball hard, and she is a good match up for me. It p*sses me off when she beats me...bah, I hate it! That is not the reason she bugs me. I just can't put my finger on it.
So, I have spent the week thinking about things I want. My list is lame...and it can't be bought.
-I want to be able to do a kick turn in the pool (I used to be able to do this, and I can't remember how)
-I want to qualify for the d*mn Boston Marathon
-I want to beat the Australian I hit with more than she beats me
-I want the Dow to be back at 12,000
How lame is that?!? I spent the better part of today thinking about things I want...and this is what it comes down to:P It's what I want.
So dear Husband, I know you are wondering what to buy your lovely wife, and since I know you can't do a kick turn...maybe a new tennis racket under the tree (grip size 4 1/2")
Am I crazy??? I'm crazy:P
