Midlife Crisis
I could have been 20 years older - there I was in brand my new trainers, baggy t-shirt with smartarse logo on it and shorts that were probably a bit too tight for me - going red and puffing my way around the squash court dodging projectiles smashed in my direction by an attractive young lady who knew the game better than me.

Squash is one of those games people only come back to after a break, and mainly when they reach the point where they're not quite ready for the golf club but want to do some kind of activity without admitting that they're any less fit than they were when they were 21.

Still, I even won a game, which is surprising, and didn't have a single heart attack.

That can only be good.

I hope not. My ego can always do with encouragement!

When playing Sarah I can to a certain degree make up for skill with just hitting the ball hard - I seem to manage to get my (more than her's) bodyweight behind the ball.

However, soon I then transform into the blustering fool careering headlong across the court into the wall, 5 seconds after the ball passed my location.

We could start playing down south - I'd be up for it! We can play doubles with you, me, Phil and his beard...

By by then we'll *all* have beards..

We must remember to tell John, Matt, Matt and Cam.

Hopilites too? Sure the physical presence and demeanor of a beard denotes, nay, begs a certain level of authority..

Good point. The next question would then be who to exclude on principle... You? Jarane?

And the rest of the world is asking why we're not having this conversation via IM.

Don't mind us, just go ahead.
And I don't know what he's going on about either. Daddy or chips?

I was with him up until his last comment - we were chatting online the other night and decided that all proper Quaesitors clearly needed to follow Cicero's lead and wear a paint brush on our face:

Then I got lost...
