Hello, Meilin! I'm definitely pleasantly surprised!
Thank you so much, guys!!
A BIG welcome to Skystalker!
And thanks to the 'anonymous' helpers from Mizuki Scans! <==
I'm the self-designated, underpaid court jester here. Well... I got paid with new emoticons <== Meilin, and a recent trip to the moon <== Rapunzel.
My least favorite subject in school is physical education. I know a lot of people like this subject. <== *no homework, maybe?*
My sister is a sports fanatic. No indoor activities, like reading manga, for her. That's why I can't persuade (bribe) her to download manga for me. Besides, her PIGGY BANK is much bigger than mine.
On the other hand, I never like to participate in sports. Why? Because I just don't like to get all hot & sweaty in school. You know how it is, I must maintain my good looks at all times for the benefits of my classmates. <== *mesmerizing, isn't it?*
So then, what do I do when I have to participate?
--Baseball - I'll try to hit the ball at least once, so that I won't get a strikeout. Although, don't expect me to run, slide, or dive to the base. Hmmm... I wonder why every time I'm up to take the bat, everyone near me immediately gets out of the way?? Is it because of that one guy that got his foot injured from my "flying" bat?? Hmmm... probably not. I think they just want to have a good view of my batting form.
--Basketball - I'll try to catch the ball if it's passed near me, but don't expect me to catch a faraway ball or wrestle the ball from somebody. What if I hurt myself in the process, eh? However, I can dribble the ball slowly and prettily until someone takes it away from me. As for shooting through the hoop, it's best to leave it to somebody more capable.
--Volleyball - I'll try to serve and hit the ball with my closed fist, NEVER with open palm, though. Why? What if I break one of my nails, ha?!? If it's too difficult to avoid that, I'll just duck or move away and let somebody else run for it.
Haa... aren't you impressed with my sportsmanship, huh?
Still, I'm sort of baffled when it's time to select the team members. How come, a popular girl like me, always seemed to be (almost) the last one to be chosen?!?
Hmmph! they don't know what they're missing! <== *patting my hair & assume a model-like pose*
