Daily Prompt: Playtime
Do you play in your daily life? What says “playtime” to you?
I USED to play daily when I was younger but as I got older I got busier with my studies so playtime became just a heavenly dream for me which I pray to get time for. I’m a very athletic person, Don’t be fooled by my superficial physique ! I may be thin but I’m very strong. Since I can remember I used to wrestle with my dad and two older brothers. I was always too much involved in sports. Half Tomboy you may say.
My wrestling sessions with my dad are the most memorable ones. He taught me a lot of moves. I used to play cricket with my brothers all the time , playing catch with them and they running after me for a kiss and me trying to get out of their embrace playfully.
My first real sport was Badminton. I was a Regional Champion in my school days. My dad was and still IS my coach. I played Volley ball as well. I was captain of my school volleyball team and a vice captain of badminton. I was a part of Table tennis team as well.( Yes I played all of it at the same time.)
In college I was studying Pre-med thus I didn’t get any time at all for sports for two years, It was all study, study and study…
Now in university I get to play sometimes, as we have ‘table tennis’ table in one of the rooms at all times so whenever I get free time I play it with one of my class mates.
We have Sports Gala every year in which MBBS, NURSING and now DPT(Doctor of Physiotherapy) departments go against each other. I won the badminton matches against the players from both departments. I came first.
I was part of the Volley ball and Basket ball team as well…I had to play all of the matches in one day. And let me tell you after I went back home, I could barely lift my leg, let alone walk. (As I had played after about two years gap, my muscles were not warmed up! )
So in short I love to play. I don’t miss a chance to play whether it’s a team of guys or gals, I don’t mind as long as I’m on the winning team (just kidding…or am I?)
