This is me sitting on the bench for the first two innings. I have yet to prove myself, so I expected as much. This is proof to Shawn I was actually playing softball at a softball field. Not out drinking with JP2 and BBFF whilst he is in Oklahoma.
So I answer an ad in Clist for a women's softball team, I may or may not have read the entire AD, but that is besides the point now.
So I show up for practice on Thursday with make up on, my big pink bag, sparkly hat and glasses, ponytail the whole nine yards. I'm pumped and ready to play.
I'm rocking the ponytail by the way.
Anywho, I take a gander at my fellow players and realize something odd. I am the only one with a pink bag, make up and ponytail. Getting my drift so far?
These ladies are wicked cool and just great players. Yet still I'm singing the song in my head " which one of these just doesn't belong?"
So, I'm accepted into the realm... Then I get the schedule emailed to me. Then it hits me like a lightning bolt and I quote.
NO GAMES SCHEDULED FOR 6/14 for Gay Pride Weekend.
HOLY SH**, I have just joined a Gay and Lesbian Softball League !!!
Now for those who know me, this is really funny because I'm relatively clueless and have zero gaydar.Even my lesbian friend was cracking up at the thought of me out there saying to myself.
Why does everyone have short hair? What's up with the hairy legs?
So she promised me that she would take me to one of the games on her big , loud motorcycle and come watch me play a game or two so I can get some street cred with the other players. Cuz, that's how I roll......
IN fact, I like it as they are hard core players and thats what I love. No crying in baseball !
So I am the token lipstick lesbian as of today.
So what is even funnier is that we were given " cards" from the Rose City Softball League , kind of like a Membership ID. Free beer at gay bars( I wonder if shawn is with me I will still get the beer), discounts for gear. etc.
SO LADIES I AM NOW AND OFFICIAL CARD CARRYING MEMBER!!!!
So go change your pants and have a great Easter!
Hugs and Love from the OUTED SIDE!
