Carey Tomato

Today Julia and I joined some friends for tennis. I was looking forward to it because I remember enjoying the sport ten years ago. It was lots of fun, but let's just say I'm not ready for Wimbledon (or maybe Wimbledon isn't ready for me). I was so glad just to get out of the house and do something active, even if I was terrible at it. My face now looks like a tomato - round and very red - due to my sun exposure without sunblock (silly me).

Mom didn't want me out tonight, so I had to turn down the semi-blind group date. I did drop Julia off and hang around for a while. My first impression of David... I honestly thought he was fifteen. He is tall, lanky and has a very high voice. I'm sure he's a really nice guy and all, but I... I don't know. I shouldn't make presumptions. Honestly, right now I'm okay being single. I've got a lot of education ahead and I really don't have time for developing a romantic relationship.

Did you play doubles or singles?

"I've got a lot of education ahead and I really don't have time for developing a romantic relationship."

Isn't that what they all say in the stories...

Actually, we played 'triples' and then singles.

And yes, that's what a lot of people say. It is a way to persuade one's self into a mindset so as not to think about... whatever. Blah blah blah. Basically, it's a way to brainwash yourself. You tell yourself (and others) that you don't care and eventually you don't.

I don't care. I don't care. I don't care. I don't care...

*chuckle*

Seriously, I've got a lot of work to do. I've got a lot of work to do. I've got a lot of work to do...

*laughs*

I know the feeling about a lot of education ahead. Maybe I have slightly less.

I hate tennis. It is one of the sports I most dislike.

God Bless

Well yes, you have slightly less education to complete because you are older than I.

Is there any sport you do like?

No, I do not think so.

Haha-- your "blind date" sounds interesting. At a lunch at church the other day all the adults were telling how they met their spouses. Some of the stories were pretty weird.

Tall, lanky, high voice... sounds strangely reminiscent of my brother, althought most people think he's way older than he is.

How old is your brother, Nella?
