I've started playing volleyball on Wednesdays with a group of people from the other side of my building. I'm not exactly a volleyball player. Sure, I know what I'm supposed to do. I've just never been very good at actually doing it. Case in point: We were playing 3 on 3 today and after I set the ball WAY too close to the net a number of times, one of the guys said "You can always set it back if we're still standing a ways behind you." Um, duh! Just because I don't set it in the right direction doesn't mean that it wasn't my plan. Ha! Luckily it's quite non-competitive. I still feel stupid half the time. Working on getting over that, though.
So last time I played everything was great, but today my arms are killing me! Sure, I accidentally hit a couple bumps off my arm bone or off my thumb knuckles. I'm not perfect. But most of them I hit exactly where I was supposed to. But now I have tons of tiny red dots on my forearms as if I broke little tiny blood vessels. And my arms actually feel bruised.
The thing is--I don't actually bruise. I never really have. I have to get hit incredibly hard in order to bruise. But rest assured that if I did bruise, my poor arms would be covered in bruises!
Poor me. Complain, complain. Whine, whine. Ok, I'm all better now.
