“We both have, you know, a drink or two and we’re listening to music,” Klineman shared, setting the scene. “And she’s like, ‘By the way, I’m gonna need a partner for the next Olympics.’ And she just kind of looks at me.”
It wasn’t a firm proposal, though Klineman had her yes all prepared (“Of course I’m gonna play with you, like, you’re better than me. I was just starting on the beach at the time”), but it was a strong maaaaaaaybe.
“She’s like, ‘I mean, not right now, like, you need to keep working, keep getting better but maybe eventually we could play together or something,'” noted Klineman. “I remember the next day I was like, ‘Did I have too much to drink? Am I imagining this really happened?'”
