...demoralized in softball last night. Jeez, but I got beat up, both on the mound and at home plate! Pitched really well and we won a doubleheader, but boys kept hitting line drives right back at me. Tagged both legs at the knees and my right hip. Then I got run over at home plate while making a play (he was out!) and I don't really know what happened -- I think the guy either didn't know how to slide or slid late or something, but we got tangled up and he smashed into me. I don't know what part of his body connected with my nose, but man! My nose and my neck got creamed! We both just laid there in the dirt while our teammates surrounded us. I lived to play again, but he screwed up his ankle and was out the rest of the game. Yeah, this is theater league softball, baby! Not for the weak of heart! The best thing about the evening was the weather -- a perfect low 70-something by the lake. Completely gorgeous. Couldn't go out to the bar afterwards, though my teammates tried to cajole me to go. Had to soak in Epsom salts (mmm, lavender) and ice my poor schnozz! Today I'm stiff and my nose is a wee bit swollen, but I guess I'm lucky considering it felt like I got hit by a train.
Happy last day of June!
