Day 14

Had a distinctly unpleasant experience this evening. I trundled along to my fencing club, but for some reason there were only three épéeists who turned up, including me.

That wasn't the unpleasant experience.

So, lacking in a suitable opponent ("Nobody will fight me! They all run away!"), I decided to try a spot of foil—which I've not done in several years, but which I still carry the relevant kit around for nonetheless.

So I dug out my lamé and tried to put it on.

The unpleasant experience was that I couldn't zip the thing up. Worse: I couldn't even get the zip to within an inch of closing in the first place.
