Today’s quote straddles the spoiler line, so consider yourself warned if you haven’t hit 568 yet…
‘I therefore experiment with volunteer blindness. Training the ear in degrees of intensity in play. Today versus Whale I was wearing the blindfold to play.’
‘How’d it go?’
‘Not as well as hoped. I frequently faced the wrong direction for play. I frequently judged the intensity of balls struck on adjacent courts as ran onto adjacent courts, intruding play.’ (568).
Combine shadenfreude and tennis and I’m yours. Better even that the Eschaton’s aftermath because nobody really gets hurt. That’s my kind of slapstick.
