Fast forward to last evening... My squash match with Sarat lasted four games that were played out over 70 minutes. The fourth game dragged on for approximately 25 minutes and at the end, I was totally spent. We had an audience of maybe 8 people watching the last game, and I know they were a little shocked when they heard both Sarat and I cuss on the court between points. To say that my system was drained would be an understatement.
The steam room provided some reprieve from the soreness, as did the ice pack. A measure of how sore I was is that my abs hurt everytime I coughed or laughed too hard - ayyp! By the time I was done watching Smallville though, I was rehydrated and relaxed but my throat felt like someone had scraped its innards with sand paper. In such circumstances, I resort to this tonic that I got myself from India (Linctus Codine) that works like magic on a sore throat. Of course, it knocks me out cold but it works okay! I slept like a baby, much like that time when Matt gave me 2 tablets of Benadryl in Pune to help me get over my allergies :))
I have a long day at work today and one last squash match for this week later tonight. Tomorrow is Sid's birthday cum farwell party and I've been asked to do the music for it. It has been a while since I did something like that so I'm excited and nervous. On second thoughts though, it's only playing hip-hop and hindi stuff; that's never difficult!
