This afternoon, Stu threw something at me.
Now before you consider calling the polizia, the thing he threw at me was the EUR 1 coin that we'd used to 'hire' our trolley at the supermarket. And I guess he didn't exactly throw it AT me; he threw it TO me.
And I caught it!
Now some of you better coordinated individuals may find this trivial.
But those of you who are familiar with my poor motor-neurone skills may appreciate this as a significant achievement.
In my office-based past, whenever I threw anything it would land in a completely unpredictable location. And whenever I prepared to catch something, it would drop, bounce and skid away long before I realised that it had been thrown! For example, if I was to throw a stone into the ocean, it would land on a sand dune. If I was to throw a ball across a field, it would land on my head. Get the picture?
Well, it appears that my coordination skills have improved since I left an office-based life. Lately, I can catch AND throw things with some measure of accuracy!
Of course, it could be that I'm just too exhausted to deliver something to someone or to collect the something that I didn't catch...
But above and beyond this mere throwing and catching business is the fact that today I almost managed to spin my lettuce spinner off the table and out the door!
I am strong. I am invincible. I am coordinated.
