Odd Things Said

Heard today in our home, by Son#1, “Mom. It’s time you buy us a mat.”

Me: Mat?

Son#1: A wrestling mat. We need a wrestling mat in the house…

Great.

Hell Yeah! Got an extra two grand lying around?

Oh- and coming from a 'wrestling mom,' it's a great sport. My oldest has wrestled for almost 7 years. Wrestling programs teach you discipline, determination and dedication. It's you against one other person. You win or lose according to YOU and no one else.

Of course, wrestling programs are cheaper ($60 plus tourney fees) than buying a 'mat' for playtime/home use! They take up less space in your house and cause less damage!

My 8 x 10 rug has served as a wrestling mat for the last 8 years. It's rolled up on my back porch now, I can send it your way.

wrestling on rugs can cause carpet burns. I have the scars on my knees to prove it

Go ahead and get the mat.... Then get them inflatable sumo suits and those American Gladiator fighting sticks. Then film it and sell it online! :D
