A haibun for dVerse on the subject of sports. Come play along!
I’ve always said that bridge and natural childbirth are my sports, which gives you an idea about the exertion involved in the first and the frequency quotient of the second. It took me two years to learn to ride a 2-wheel bike, and there was much celebration when I broke 100 in bowling. But bidding and winning a slam and three babies sans anesthetics should qualify me for some kind of trophy, don’t you think?
chickens are dumpy
and never soar as eagles
but omelets taste good.
