1. You can play badminton with the dog. I don’t think my twin cousins ever got past the problem of their dog holding a badminton racquet.

2. You can get the other three kids to play badminton; surely one of them knows how to hold a racquet. My guess is that while the dog was exploring the old storage trailer, my cousin Danny recruited my uncle Steve and me in the hope that we could overthrow his sisters in the rural badminton championship.

3. You can give up on badminton and hang out with the dog. Limitations force us to be more creative. Are you using your limitations to be more creative or to keep yourself from creating?
