I am so sore today. I won my match singles match on Saturday afternoon. Then, Bret and I had to play a mixed doubles match an hour later which ended up lasting almost 3 hours. Even though we put up a good fight, we ended up losing. I played my second singles match yesterday morning at 8 (… I can’t remember the last time I got up at 7:00 AM on a Sunday), and I ended up losing. Even though Bret and I lost our matches, the tournament has motivated us to really practice and get back to being good at tennis. However, this weekend reminded me that I will be 25 and am no longer 15-18 years old.
I’ve been listening to Fruit Bats since freshman year of college. Sometimes their songs are hit or miss… but I always end up finding a select few that I thoroughly enjoy. Recently, I’ve been listening to “Slipping Through the Sensors.” The entire song only has 30 words in its lyrics which I find impressive since it’s nearly a five minute long song.
Every time their name pops up on my shuffle playlist, I get a nice happy feeling inside. I remember thinking that fruit bats were soooo adorable when I was a kid. I mean, c’mon… How many of you wouldn’t want to own one of these cute little guys?
Plus, fruit bats remind me of Batty from the movie Ferngully. I take serious pride in the fact that I can sing all the lyrics to this song:
