Today I spent an hour playing table tennis with my neighbour. He loved it and so did I.
Sylvester, my neighbour, is a 73 year old Austrian bloke who lives on his own in sleepy little Sandy Point. He is a cool cat that spends 3 months of the year visiting his long time girlfriend in Austria. The other 9 months are spent working around his house, feeding native birds and cooking for one.
Last week he invited me over for a game because he needed to “practice his backhand”. Well after an hour of trying to get his lightning shots back over the net, I can tell you his backhand is just fine!
Table tennis was just a reason for me to hang out with Sylvester, hear about his life in Austria and have some fun. Spending an hour once a week or so is the least I can do I reckon. From now on, Sylvester and I will be having a regular game.
Keep your eyes peeled for someone who might enjoy some of your time..
