I'm a fencer!

Well, an interesting surprise occurred. I'm now a fencer! πŸ™‚

It all started with signing up my niece for a local fencing class. She was very interested in joining when we found out from someone that classes were available. Later on, I considered that perhaps I should have joined too since I was going to be taking her anyway and waiting around. However, when I checked, the classes were full.

During the 1st session while I was sitting around and watching my niece, a lady started chatting with me. She was apparently a fencing student in another class and had been doing it for two years. She was very friendly and talkative. She asked me why I didn't join my niece, so I told her about how I had thought about it, but the class was full.

Well, at the beginning of the 2nd session, the coach asked me if I wanted to hop in and join the class. I was shocked, and the other lady said she had a big mouth. I guess she had talked with the coach and got me into the class. πŸ™‚ Even though I was nervous, I was also excited. And I couldn't back out, so I joined.

It was exhilarating. I couldn't believe I was doing it. I had always dreamed about doing something like that, but never took the initiative myself. I'm going to continue with the class. I like thinking of myself as a fencer. πŸ™‚
