||Hehehe...Ah, geez. Now this is just fun. Storytime!|
Ok, so my roommate and I were boxing at the rec center, and there was this guy there, too, boxing away! And he really looked like he knew what he was doing (we so didn't at the time, haha), so we kinda just sparred with the target gloves and stayed away from him. So then, when we was done, he asked us "So, have you ever considered taking lessons?" And I'm all, "Is it that obvious that we don't know what we're doing?" And then he says "Everyone's learning...you never stop learning." Ooookayyyy...so then he says "You should stop by the White Dragon, on such-and-sucha street by what's-its-place. You might like it!" "Ah, okay, thanks!" And he left. Andrea and I are mentally shrugging.
So then, the next time we're boxing, she says to me, "Hey Liz, you gonna go to the White Dragon??" And the banter ensues. Couple times later, the subject comes up again. "Geez, you need to come to the WHITE DRAGONNNN!!!" I reply, "Woman, I AM the White Dragon!!!" So that's me. The dragon lookin' chick.
But we needed a name for Andrea, so I'm like, "Hmmm, something fierce....fire....lion?" "No, weird! Something with 'lotus' in it or something." "Ok, um...lotus lion...lion lotus fire....fire...fire lotus! That's it! Fire Lotus, ha HA!!" And so it goes. Now we have some goofy nicknames, and a drawing to show for it, plus a long-winded story told by...your truly.
