I went with some friends to play badminton tonight- my first game ever! I didn't show much potential but I gave it a try. And it was a blast! Seriously, look how many people are on those courts. There wasn't an empty space for us when we got there!
I had a few misconceptions when I arrived. I have no idea why but I was expecting large tennis courts with 5-6 members on each side. Have I seriously never watched a game of badminton? Or maybe that's the only way we played as kids? I think I've got the rules down now... maybe. I have a few more times to practice before Zach gets here and kicks my butt!

actually stringed instruments for most of my life.
