I am trying to put together a team for 5 a side football this weekend. It has proved to be more difficult then I realized.
First I should say … in my country guys AND girls play soccer and it is not just for tom-boys. Reallyy girlly girls play football and I would like to stay on that end of the stereotype in your heads. So as I type about football. The sport that British people think only lads play. Just think.. I like flowers, lots of flowers, and the ballet and watching the nutcracker a few weeks ago made me want to be a fairy princess. On that note…
Seriously how hard is it to find 6 people to play on a football team? First off my housemates aren’t options at all. If you wonder, just see my housemates and they will laugh at you for such a question. Running is out of the question for the three of them. Running and chasing a ball is a no go. Indeed as a last ditch effort in talking to one of them tonight.. she laughed. A lot. But I knew that would be the case and she knew I knew that.. so it did make it funnier.
Second. My friend Emeka is in on it. I was mocking him for his lack of friends to be able to add to our small but mighty team. Our text conversation went like this:
Me: Do you have any work people you want to invite?
Emeka: They’re all in Glasgow or Gosport (he travels during the week for work)
Me: Oi. And Emeka has no other friends? Hmm I can prob ask students??
Emeka: Fair point.. I was being lazy..
Me: Okay done. Students it is. I am friends with boys who love salsa. That should say it all. 🙂
Emeka: Good work Christy. I am friends with boys who love computers…
