Best $0.00 I Ever Spent

I apologize. I should never have implied that our new table should be used for ping pong. Octavian was right: It can probably only be used for ping.

I have been begging my roommates to get rid of a bunch of crap in the basement so I can buy us a ping pong table. (almost) nothing would make me happier than to drink beer and play ping pong.

I've taken to calling this room the bible study room, for reasons I won't go in to that involve bibles but not studying, then Octavian reminded me that it was supposed to be called the ping pong room. We had talked about putting a ping pong table in it. Why did we stop talking about it? How much is a ping pong table?

It seems like they don't get much cheaper than $100 for a brand new one. I'm not sure where to find a used one.

If you want to try to play ping pong on this table without a net, I'm game. I happen to know a former member of the Alberta provincial team and a guy who used to practice with his girlfriend who represented Shanghai at some level. Plus my roommate says he's better at ping pong than pool and he's so good at pool that one of the owners of the Garneau calls him "the champ"

I am not good at anything even remotely athletic. I would much rather just rally instead of win/lose. But even without a net I find myself in a meditative state just listening to the pinging and ponging.

Maybe next time I'm over I'll bring a ball and some paddles.
