After what felt like an eternity of waiting for Bill to take the first shot in our sparring match, I jumped in for a kick. He blocked and followed it up with a kick of his own.
Right to the nuts.
A lot of people didn’t see the hit, but everybody heard the hollow thunk of his foot on my cup. If I hadn’t been wearing it, I probably wouldn’t need to worry about talking to a doctor about a vasectomy anymore.
