Today Stephane and I went to play basketball but we were the only two who showed. We played 21. Then we found two pylons and set them up on the court, and tried to get balls to bounce as little as possible off rebound shots and land in between the pylongs. Then we made up a game where we kicked the pylons towards the place we found them and tried to get them there with as few kicks as possible – like golf with pylons. We called it gylon. We tied at that game, every other game we played I lost. But I got sweaty so that was good.
