Right after I made the posting below with a picture of a man playing Chinese featherball in Beijing I met this sweet old lady on the street here in Chengdu. She makes handmade featherballs at home and sold me two for 4 yuan a piece.

    Tī qǐlai ɡǎnjué zěnmeyànɡ?

  2. wǒ bù hěn líng húo 灵活! I haven't been able to kick it around more than once or twice. I gave them to my children who are much more agile than me!
