There are many aspects of This Thing We Do (TTWD) that *seem* really mental or *seem* really physical. But so many times, it ends up being both.
For me, that’s the case with impact play. Honestly, I went into it thinking it was a mental “game” – just dealing with it and that I could get past it. But the physical side of things surprises me every. single. time.
I’m “in training” I suppose – I’ve had times where we warm up and I feel pretty good about my control and response and even love it. But then the times that come with no warm-up… not my favorite thing. I’m still working on those times.
This is one of those times. I feel like I’m slowly getting better, but then I slide backwards sometimes.
And that damn wooden spoon. I hope it burns in hell some day. Mostly because it burns LIKE hell when it’s used on me. I was thankful this wasn’t one of those times.
Still, after not so many smacks, and working to stay put (and get back to the right place), things were pretty rosy.
