I’m going to be fully honest with you, it can get pretty competitive around the Marantz household. Justin & I are both naturally really competitive people, and J can be especially so having come from a very long line of competitive people (hey, we still don’t talk about the first time I played dominos with his dad….right Papa D?! :) So when we decided it was going to be a badminton themed BBQ for the 4th, we both knew it was on…..like flan….twirling a baton. For real.
I spent every summer of my childhood playing badminton in the backyard til it was too dark to see the birdie anymore. And Justin claims to have played competitively in high school. :) Seriously, is there anyone out there who can either confirm or deny this? So last night we broke out our new fancy schmancy set from Restoration Hardware (the one with real feathers on the birdies), to see who really was the badminton champion.
Well after the longest match in history (psssht, Wimbeldon ain’t got nothin’ on us!) with darkness setting in, we agreed to call it a tie for the sake of our union.
And because, y’know, after all our dating anniversary was the next day. :) But come July 4th, I can tell you this… Mr. Marantz better be ready to bring his A-game!
