So, last night I went over to Khaentlahn's and hit her with a stick for about half an hour—of course, she was wearing armor, the whole hitting thing was more of an attempt at getting through her defense, and it was a stick of rattan. :)
I have the hands of someone who runs a computer for a living, I wasn't wearing armor or any sort of protective anything (she wasn't hitting back), the stick I was using was an old sword shaved for a right-hander, and, perhaps, my technique could use some work. :o) So, I have not one, not two, but three blisters. Only one of which got broken while I had sword in hand (and, so far, I've successfully resisted taking a pin to the others). What does it say about me that I'm kinda excited to have a fighting-related injury, insignificant as it is?
