I need to take up a sport.
The doctor said so.
But which one?
It’s a tough decision.
How about golf? Nah, first of all golf costs too much, second- it’s stupid.
Tennis? Too sweaty, plus you need a partner and my wrists are weak.
Volleyball? …..really? Where would I get the other players?
Running? Nope, too hard on joints.
Biking? I sold my bike years ago….
Roller blading? Tried it…..I have no discernible balance.
Yoga? Every time I try ‘downward facing dog’ I get a muscle cramp.
Dancing…..I’ve been told never to dance……ever. (Think Seinfeld.)
Kayaking….that requires going outdoors.
Ice skating: see roller blading.
Skiing…We live in Florida.
Water skiing…requires costly equipment.
Martial arts….um, no.
Swimming….this is the top contender if I can squeeze myself into a bathing suit. (I’ll keep you posted.)
So I’ve narrowed it down to these requirements:
Doesn’t need costly (or any) equipment.
Is a solitary endeavor (I don’t like crowds.)
No sweating involved.
I think I’ve got it!
Does solitaire count as a sport?
