Time...

... well, the day is here.... and you people really let me down... the Sun is shining and the birds are chirping... and there isn't a damn cloud in the sky... I said pray for RAIN, people...

.. anyway, I'm still optimistic that this will fall through... and since I have nothing else to write about, I'll keep a running record of today's non-tennis events....

8:30 - made coffee.... no sign of movement from the master bedroom....

10:00 - made second pot of coffee and jumped into the shower... she's still sleeping...

10:23 - (that's now)... put on shorts, tee-shirt, socks, and sneakers... you know, just in case... bedroom door remains closed...

... updates to follow...

10:40 - ... uh oh... I just heard the toilet flush.. I may be in trouble...

10:48 - ..... all is quiet again... I'm safe... I peeked in the door and there was a giant wad of bedclothes in the center of the bed with brown curly hair sticking out the top..

10:54 - .... damnation... I think hearing the door click shut woke her up... she's moved through to the couch and is watching American Movie Classics on tv...

11:26 - ... ooohhhh yeah... TNT has old episodes of "ER" running back to back.... this is going to take a while.....

1:03 - .... it is done... an hour of bouncing a little yellow ball back and forth on the deck... it was quite fun... well, in a "bouncing a beachball" kind of way.... the thought being that we need to practice our skills in private before hitting a pubic court and looking like morons... (it is debatable if that is ever going to be achievable)...

... now I just need to find a shady spot and re-hydrate... oh, and another thing... is it ok to take smoke breaks between sets?... I did and I think it improved my game... then again, this was my first ever attempt at "tennis".....

Smoke breaks between sets are a MUST. ;-)

Here are some tips you won't see on the television matches. That sliding crap only works on clay and for pros. Never place a beer at the net or if you do make sure it is in a can. The placemet of coolers and lounge chairs if of highest importance, its not cool to trip over ones own cooler. Use the simplified scoring system, the love crap will drive you crazy. Better yet let her win and take a beer and or smoke break while you recover from th beating.

One last thing, it saddens me to say this but I am afraid I will have to deduct 10 points off your manly evaluation scale.
