Way back when in high school I tried out for the basketball team.
Despite being one of the tallest girls in the school and quite athletic,
I didn’t make the cut.
(Did I mention I also had a bit of an attitude and a big mouth?)
(This is the 2006 Canadian team)
So instead of basketball, I curled for two seasons.
And guess what?
I was really good.
I got to be the skip.
The skip tells the others where to throw their stones
and when to sweep.
In other words, I got to boss people around.
I like to point that out whenever I hear someone dissing shuffle board on ice.
