Anyway, in class, we (there was another student there this time) learned how to use elbows. When I called my mom to tell her about it, the conversation went something like this;
Her- You mean hitting people with your elbows?!
Her- Are you going to be wearing elbow pads?
Me- Well we did tonight, but I don't think we always will be.
Her- I wouldn't want to be hit with someone's elbow!
Me- Well, that's sort of the point. No one does.
Her- I don't think I'm going to like this.
I always imagine this is what my mom looks like when I talk to her, on the phone, about kickboxing.
