@vicorva I love the microfic you sent. Thanks so much!
Anyway, it was a good lesson to remind me to get over my anxiety: it's my dojo too, and my friends there are happy that I practice with them.
I nervously offered to replace his gi. He just laughed and said he'd throw me harder next time we practice. Joke's on him, though: he always throws hard anyway.
Except at aikido this morning I dripped purple sweat all over the mat, and stained both my own and the uchideshi's gis. That's bad!
