This may be a bit of a long shot, but I haven’t had much luck with private inquiries, so here I am. I’m a professional woman in my mid-30s; I’ve got a job I love in publishing, a nice little garden, and I’m in decent enough shape. While on paper I’ve got just about everything, I find myself missing a good wife or husband who’s just down to shoot some hoops with now and then, and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations.
I don’t think this is a big ask, and I’m not too picky! My main criteria are: decent at threes, kind eyes, stays cool when they hit rim, and can hold up their end of a leisurely conversation between shots. I’m sure there’s no shortage of husbands and wives out there who fit that bill, and I look forward to mixing it up with them.
...If you have a reputable husband or wife in mind, would you please let them know in advance that I’m a bit rusty?
If you think you have a candidate, please don’t hesitate to send them my way. They’re welcome to swing through my freshly paved driveway for a round or two of H.O.R.S.E. I’m also happy to meet up at a local playground or YMCA, and I’ll bring my own regulation-size Spalding, too. Personally, I prefer concrete to hardwood, but it’s not a real sticking point for me.
I do have one request: If you have a reputable husband or wife in mind, would you please let them know in advance that I’m a bit rusty? I don’t want anyone going easy on me, but it’s been a while since I put in work on my fundamentals, and it may just take me a few games to get back into the groove. But when I do, just watch out for my jumper!
My schedule is fairly flexible. These days, my weekends are wide open, and I can duck out early most Thursdays after lunchtime. I’m easily accessible by bus or train, too. In other words, I’m ready to ball at a hat’s drop!
Thank you in advance for all your help!
