What Happened?

I posted an entry on Monday and it has magically disappeared. What to do, what to do? I have to recreate it, damn! I was on a roll on Monday too, I will never get that inspiration back, such is life.

Here goes:

My buddies and I have started playing basketball on Sunday afternoons now that the weather is getting decent. We call ourselves the Rainbow Coalition since we've got a Latino, a black guy and three white guys.

The key is that none of us have any actual skill in playing basketball. Now don't get me wrong, we have our moments. I actually nailed 3 consecutive 3-point shots last Sunday when we played. That is the highlight of my basketball career to date. We do play with a lot of enthusiam though, to make up for our lack of actual skills.

I did something to my foot on Sunday when we were playing but I don't know what. I didn't land on someone else after getting a rebound, no twisted ankle, but something is now out of whack. My foot swelled up on Monday and I couldn't even walk on it on Tuesday. A little better today, so I am on the mend. All week long, all I have heard is "What's wrong with you?" Needless to say, I don't think I will be playing basketball next Sunday.

It is amazing how hard it is to do stuff while standing on one foot - pour a glass of water, brush your teeth - all the little things we take for granted. Peace out, people!
