honesty

I don't play tennis. A small part of me longs to when I see folks walking in their tennis whites to the court at Figure 8 island in the summer, but alas it just not my game. I actually took tennis lessons for a while when I was growing up. My coach said I had a lot of potential, but I was lazy. Pretty much the story of my life ;) I had a pretty good forehand and backhand swing, but I just wasn't into running for the ball. Man, when the ball came to me though, you'd better watch out. I was killer on the ball machine.

I do not play tennis. But, I do desperately want to wear a tennis skirt. I love them. I think they're so cute. Everytime I go in a sporting good store, I covet them. At Marshalls, I try to convince myself that it doesn't matter that I don't play tennis. The skirts are at such a great price, I could buy one just to wear around the house. I could shuffle and hop side to side in my den pretending that I play. I could jump up in front of the mirror like I'm executing the ultimate serve and watch the skirt float gracefully back down to my legs. I really, really, really want a tennis skirt. Perhaps it's the middle school cheerleader in me, or the crazy person.

I also really want an ice skating dress.

I want to wear tennis skirts too! Unfortunately, I don't have the legs for it. So I say, go for it. You could even run around in it, and people would just assume you played.

Me too!!! Except I always want the really expensive ones that I can in no way justify. I could probably justify one of those "running skirts," but for some reason that doesn't appeal to me at all.
