10 things you hear on the badminton court*

Badminton

*When two friends return to the game after longer than they care to remember

#1
(After just missing a shot)
“If [insert husband’s name] was here he’d be shouting at me: ‘Run for it. RUUUN. FOR. IIIIIIT!’

#2
*Screams*
*Ducks*
“Good grief, dodging that one was a matter of survival!”

#3
*Serves over arm*
“What was THAT?”
“Oops, wrong game.”

#4
“Jesus, there are balls coming from every angle.”
(The perils of being assigned the court next to the table tennis squad.)

#5
“Too much hilarity! FOCUS!”

#6
“It’s like my brain and arm are out of synch. My brain thinks it’s already hit it then my arm misses it.”

#7
“What’s the score?”
“5-1.”
“You’re not playing very well this week.”
“Noooo… you have the one point… I have the five!”

#8
“I need a tactician to tell me what I’m doing wrong.”
*Catches sight of opponent’s wry smile*
“I know… EVERYTHING.”

#9
*Drop shot falls just short of the net*
“Ha, that’ll teach you.”
*Proceeds to do exact same shot as opponent with exact same result*
“Oh… that’ll teach me.”

#10
(After missing another shot and having to send some shuttlecocks her opponent’s way)
“Here, have them. Have them all. You may as well… Satan’s children.”
