100 Facts #7

In high school I played on the tennis team with several friends and my younger sister. It was a small school, so we didn't have to be great to make the team. Not that I was bad, but I lost quite a few matches. The most embarrassing thing was that my younger sister wound up being better than I was, so she played the 1st singles slot and I played 2nd singles. Mortifying. One match we got to play doubles together and we kicked ass. That was a great day.

Neilotchka! You found me after my none-too-subtle ploy on your blog ;)

And I must say that you are probably the better player.

I had a talented younger sibling, too, and it sucked. He was better than me at about everything- school, music, whittling, etc., but I found out later that he felt like he was in *my* shadow just because he had allergies and couldn't do sports. Go figure.
