Chair Volleyball Stars

The 80-somethings at “the home” have a new sport: chair volleyball.

About a dozen of them sit on each side of a net, all in chairs. They use a nice, soft beach ball. It doesn’t matter how many times your “side” needs to hit it, to get it over the net. It’s usually far more than three.

Hilarity ensues.

Although they (thankfully) eschewed those super short-short volleyball shorts, a couple of these oldie chair volleyballers have been seen to use Band-aids to tape their two middle fingers together, just like star volleyball players.

In fact, they confess, it is so darned fun, they all have to wear Depends.

But gee whiz! That’s not exercise! You don’t even have to get out of your chair!

Yes, we do, they protest. We have to go up and get our TROPHIES!
