Well...it was a judo kind of party, meaning all the coaches were training and all the kids groups, at the same time. Crowded floor but reasonably fun. It's good that the newest kids get to see me and F (my former help coach, since he outranks me now, he'll be head from now on) because some of them will be joining our group after the holidays.
So, a lot of play wrestling, the kids giving it all they had, adults trying to not be too obvious about the giving in... In the end I did get my workout though, I grabbed F by the collar and tried to strangle him and the fight was on. We were cheered on by our kids.
That was the best part of the party, I haven't had a decent wrestle in 3 month, since I sprained my ankle. Then there were glögg and ginger snaps for all. We were suppose to upgrade most of our kids that attended but overall head coach fumbled it away
they'll get their new belts when we begin again. And then I found out there would be a meeting afterwards... I was totally uninterested (and very sweaty & smelly) and could barely keep my eyes open.
Now I'll go see what the cafe have been doing on my lex-less day, night girls!
Just wanted to get your view of this... since you all know how terribly old I am
when I wrestled F tonight at the party our kids kept urging the other big guys to help me out and was frustrated when they didn't. Our kids ain't big enough, so they didn't see that I was in advantage
and they kept giggling as we rolled all over the floor. Ah, what the heck, it was the closest thing to a cuddle I've had in 1½ week... What sounds worse? Cuddling a 16 year old or strangling a 16 year old? I did the last, but our kids thought it looked like the first...
in my defense, he tried his best to strangle me back... but I've trained since the year he was born, so he's not quite there yet. I'm amazed that we didn't squash a kid during this, they stood all very close...
