Believe it or not, I played soccer. For a long time. When I was younger, much younger. I played soccer from about..... 2nd grade to 11th grade. I wasn't that good, but when I finally did get into physical shape, I wasn't bad. But then the season would end, my physical activity and training would slide and.... I'd be out of shape again. Just like I am now.
Actually, during one of my grade school soccer years, a soccer ball hit me square in the mouth and chipped some of my teeth. What they say about being hit in the ball with a ball when you're young is true... I freak if anything resembling a ball flies towards my face now.
Because my teeth were chipped (and one was chipped pretty badly) I had to go to the dentist to have it "bonded." Then it chipped again many years later and it still bothers me to this day. I'm learning now, as I get "older" just how important good teeth are. I have extremely sensitive teeth and my teeth hurt a lot.
So I guess, in a very roundabout-not-related way, soccer taught me about good dental hygiene. Make sure you brush, floss and rinse people!! :) Did any of you learn some very roundabout-not-really-related lessons from your childhood events that have carried into adulthood? Share with us!
