officially the WORST tennis player in the Los Angeles area

omg, so i went for my tennis ranking two Saturdays ago...

it was SO HOT and gross. it was a special ranking event at the tennis courts in griffith park, which is known as a very cruisy park. well, certain parts of it are.

anyway, so i go there and the LATA has 6 courts reserved for the event. 3 courts are being used for warm up, and 3 are used for ranking. in the ranking courts, there is a current member of the LATA, with a high ranking who you will be playing against. 1 game of me serving and 1 game of the other person serving. so mind you, this is a public park, so there is just chain link fence around the courts, and not that dense mesh material. so, while you are on the court, there are three other people who are observing your play to determine your ranking. and all around the courts are people who are hanging out, waiting their turn. now mind you this is the first time i have ever played tennis in front of people i don't know. and with someone i never met. basically, it was over in ten minutes. uhm, hello. i lost, love, love. no points either game. ugh.

so they said they would post the results on the website. now, i am thinking there will be all levels of people, you know an even mix of beginners, intermediate, and advanced. so i look on the website today, and i am ranked H. ok, mind you as of Saturday, i thought the rankings went from A, B, C, D, E, F, G. what?!?!! suddenly now there's an H?!?! am i that bad that they had to invent a new level?

ok. so i go through the roster for all the other leagues, and there are 3 H's. and two of them are me!!!?!?!? OMG, HOW HUMILIATING. i have never been so embarrassed in my life!!! first they invent a new level of CRAPPY tennis players, and then they put me down twice!!! UGH. hahahahahaa. wwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh. i dunno if i should laugh or cry.
