The rockstar boyfriend and I have been playing ping pong.
Maybe once a week, maybe less, but fairly consistently for the past couple months.
His parents have a ping pong table in their basement, and well, it’s FUN.
I’m not very good. The rockstar is quite good. He’s got this spin move he does sometimes that’s funny and awesome at the same time.
But while I’m not very good, I’m getting better.
We played tonight, and had we stopped at best two out of three (despite a 7-0 run on his part during one game), I would have won. Instead, we played a fourth game and he won.
(The little girl actually came down and told us it was time to go home during this game. I then glanced upstairs and noticed my son had his coat and boots on. It wasn’t that late, really. I swear).
Anyway, ping pong … kinda rocks.
Is this an acceptable opinion to hold? Can I still be cool? Or is liking ping pong something that just happens when you enter your thirties and sort of synonymously lose whatever cool you still had?
F it. It rocks. Either way.
My blog hit 10,000 visitors today.
Can I just say: “Woo-hoo!”
The site meter is at more than 10,000 actually. When I started writing this post, it read 10,080. Since Nov. 4. Five weeks ago.
And pretty. freaking. awesome.
I know that’s not staggering traffic for some blogs written by women with kids trying to figure this crazy world out. It’s also not staggering compared to what that website I used to work for gets (you know … that one? I forget the name).
But for me, doing this very-little-on-the-side project all on my own? Completely awesome.
Thank you. So much. I hope you’ll keep reading.
Finally, a song from the “just because I love you mix” CD the rockstar gave me today:
