So, last night, during some PT, my waster acquired its first real casualty.
I had done 5 min of good hard cardio with my Heavy Hands, and switched off to use the longsword waster for some heavy bag striking.
Sure enough, before I could even get a good hit in–BAM! went the light globe hanging from the overhead. Shattered glass pieces all over the carpeted floor. I had hit it with the waster. That thing has endless reach.
I had smacked it before, but only once or twice. At least once with the bokken, if I remember correctly, and I think once with the waster.
Really–having lived here now for 10 years (*gasp*!!!!), I would’ve expected them both to have come down by now. Between having several sets of roomies living down there, and the fact that I use the room for workouts and martial arts training… so I’m really quite happy with the longevity of those ceiling lights (there are two–well now, one–squashed looking glass globes hanging from the relatively low ceiling containing two bulbs each).
I’ve actually been thinking of finding a way to recess them. Maybe now’s my excuse… 🙂
