Daily Prompt: Linger
Tell us about times in which you linger — when you don’t want an event ,or a day to end. What is it you love about these times? Why do you wish you could linger forever?
Our human mind is strange, we usually are not excited to linger. But then we go about face and change our mind we want certain things to linger forever. What could be the reason for this change. If I were to guess I’d say it has something to do with how much enjoyment we get out of certain events.
I once watched a championship tennis match between two awesome players , Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, the former is from Switzerland and the latter from Spain. Roger always fares well on grass and Rafael on Red Clay.
Roger was the defending champion and Rafael the opponent tried to unseat the defending champion the venue was the lawn tennis in Wimbledon, England .
They were playing unbelievable tennis shot for shot, we were watching on TV, I however never enjoy watching any kind of sports unless I choose a favorite.
Roger was and still is my favorite tennis player. It was a tense situation, I couldn’t enjoy it that much because I was afraid Roger might not be able to defend his title. Rafael was unbelievable.
The last set was a tiebreak, both had championship point, at one time or other, between the two I wondered who wanted it most,no one was ready to give up.
Finally Roger Federer was able to retain his championship point and won the match. after the match I felt happy Roger won but felt a little sad for Rafael. This was one match I could watch forever!
Thank you for sharing this. Some situations – like a sporting event you describe – can be fun to watch, and also tense, because you really don’t want one’s favorite team to lose.
All good wishes,
Thank you Robert. 🙂
