A Recent Conversation #2

Rarely am I witness to the nice things that Nathan says about me to others (although he assures me that this happens often).  However, the other night I thought it was my lucky day when he had had a bit too much to drink with his friends and the discussion centered on my sports acumen.

Him: Did you know Hanna was a champion jello wrestler her freshmen year of college?  She's always been into the risky sports, unafraid to sacrifice her body.  She was a goalie when she played soccer.  The catcher in softball.  She rock climbs.  She's fearless. 

Me: Oh wow, Nathan, that's the nicest thing you've ever said about my athletic abilities.  Aww, I love you so much!

Him: Yep, she's definitely got plenty of courage.  Skill, on the other hand...


  1. ha! I forgot about your jello wresting championship! He has a good memory...skill is in the eye of the beholder :)

  2. Plenty of people have skill but lack the courage to try. I think courage and fearlessness is a much better quality to have!

  3. Ha! Me too, but most of my in-laws-to-be have both. They give me points for trying, at least, though they all secretly hope I'm on the other team. Nathan is a bit of a scaredy cat, so hopefully our future children get his skill and my fearlessness and not the other way around.

  4. Hillarious, Hanna!! You were a champ, and you were usually the first one to dive into anything. I would have just run around the outside of the Jello pit to see if they could get me:)
