Reality Check. I have the shorts back, now I need to work on bringing back the sport; I suspect it will be when the kids are in college and I join some sort of senior league. Some things gotta give in this crazy life, such as sports that do not involve my kids, yet require advance planning (court time and presumably finding another player). If I have adult time away from the wee ones and need to make any sort of reservation, I would prefer to have a glass of wine in my hand, not a racquet.
My husband claims he started to fancy me the day he saw me stroll by him in the “student center” at college after tennis practice, wearing gray short shorts (presumably headed to the “caf” for a dinner of Lucky Charms). Those shorts are immediately what I thought of when I saw these. They’re cute, comfy, and yes, short. I love Lululemon for workout gear, but I generally don’t splurge on pieces worn outside of a yoga class or gym (I imagine I could find less expensive gray shorts elsewhere). But a gift card from my lovely friend in L.A. seemed to call for something outside of the capris and tanks I stink up on a regular basis.
