It’s not easy to find a Ping-Pong companion in Manhattan.
One friend told me: “I haven’t played in years.”
Another friend said: “I have zero eye-hand coordination.”
“I prefer tennis,” an acquaintance told me.
Another person asked me: “Can’t we have a drink without playing Ping-Pong?”
I also heard: “I don’t do competitive sports with friends.”
A girl told me: “We used to have a Ping-Pong table in our garden, but the rain destroyed it. So I’ve become a worthless player.”
All valid arguments, I must say.
