Thankful Thursday - Misadventures of Badminton

Somehow, a day trip to New York City managed to turn into an adventure, ending with my friend in the emergency room and all of us up until close to six in the morning.  Luckily, my friend's illness was not life-threatening, and she was sent home yesterday with antibiotics and advice to rest, and everyone got home safely.  Although a good number of people, ahem, went out and partied, I'm still thankful for many things yesterday (I know it's Friday >_<).  

- The president of the badminton club, corralling 14 people and 3 cars into some form of organization and managing to keep everyone cheerful at the same time
- The people who organized for the club to go and practice at real courts, seeing people whose every shot is really just a smash in disguise (or a superb drop)
- The owners of the badminton club, who reduced our entry fees
- The random man who helped us parallel park when apparently, out of the 11 people who came in two of the cars, everyone either didn't have a driver's license or hadn't parallel parked since their driving test
- The hospital here at school, a combination of research facility, lecture halls and working medical center, whose emergency room has cared for 3 of my friends in the last 3 years
- Vietnamese pho for lunch, which kept us all going until about 9 o'clock that night

Be happy.
