Football on the beach

I went to play football today with my old classmates from school. It was fun, but I learnt that I’m hopelessly out of shape. Less than 30 minutes of running and I was completely out of breath, not to mention I was starting to get a headache. I’m middle-aged at 19! I’d also like to complain about buses and the way they don’t like to show up on a Besant Nagar bound route for more than half an hour, no good sirs, that’s simply no good.

In any case, Karthik dropped me home. I don’t know if I could’ve made it back by bus, I was so tired. Anyway, my phone camera is useless for anything but daylight photographs. The moon was so low today, it was like it had come closer to Earth or something and it was reflected in the water so brightly it seemed like there were floodlights on the water. Amazing sight. Simply amazing.

In other news, it’s John Thanky’s birthday today. I met him on the way there. Wish him :)

  1. :) Yeah, I don’t have any shorts.

    Vijay, Gowtham: Marc’s replaced football with video games these days. However, my batch still plays football regularly on the beach. You can join us if you want. :)

  2. George, I don’t like playing on the beach because the ball doesn’t roll correctly and it doesn’t feel like football. My special skill in intercepting high balls and I cannot do that if I don’t have flat ground to run fast on.

    We’ll go buy you some shorts next week.
