My Wednesday night

humiliation - make (someone) feel ashamed and foolish by injuring their dignity and self-respect, esp. publicly.
tennis - a game in which two or four players strike a ball with rackets over a net stretched across a court. 

Guess what I did this evening? Yep. Play tennis. 
Well in the first game my actions could best be described as 'holding a racquet.' 6-1
The second game was better. My 'over the net and within the white lines' count reached double figures. 6-2
In the third game I hit my straps and we put up a good fight. 6-5 

Although the night started dismally I ended up recovering some pride.

Good for you! If you keep improving at that rate you'll be unstoppable!

Sounds somewhat similar to bowling...I mean you get better as you warm up to the game!!

Absolute gold.

On another note - have you ever been to the pub called 'The Three Brothers Arms' in Macclesfield, on the way to Strathalbyn?

We went there today with a friend visiting from Sydney. It is trés cool and methinks you'd love it.
