"I'm Concussed!"

Or at least that's what we think. Turns out that slow pitch softball actually can be dangerous. Who'duh thought it?! I know what some of you are saying to your computer screens right now...

"She hurt herself AGAIN?!" "What the crap did she do to herself now?!

See how well I know you! Anyway, so last night while playing on my city co-ed team, I took a turn playing catcher for an inning. Turns out that wasn't so much fun. While rounding third base, the stupid girl decides she wants to try and make it all the way home. My team throws the ball in for the play. The rules say that if there is a play at a base, the runner has to slide. She didn't. I caught the ball fully expecting to tag the runner at my feet, instead I got bulldozed to the ground. I upon landing on the ground the back of my head did a nice little bounce in the dirt. Not such a soft landing.

Technically the girl should have been out anyway since she didn't slide, but luckily for me, I held onto the ball so she was FOR SURE OUT!!! I got up and finished the game alright, with the only thing really hurting was my jaw from tensing up. Today, chewing is a bit of a task, and I've been on the verge of dizzy all day with a slight headache. That's when we decided (my Mammy and I) that a slight concussion was probably the likely outcome. Now I wish I'd gotten up and punched the retard girl in the teeth or something!

I know I have this unusual habit of injuring myself (burns while cooking, road rash from sliding into 3rd base in shorts, etc.) and a crazy attraction to an array of ski breaks, I just can't help myself. What can I say? I'm like Martin Short in the movie "Pure Luck" or something! Dumb things just have a way of finding me!!!

Hey, that's different at least. Usually its just confussed.

Well, at least you held onto the ball...your story would be much more tragic if she hadn't gotten out in the process. Seriously, though, take care of your head! We don't need you to be "concussed" anymore!! :)

P.S. Word verification: peatail...what the heck?!

Ha... after I read Jaime's comment I had to tell you my word verification too. Doweight.

Is blogger trying to tell me something??

Shameless-Blogger IS always sneakily trying to tell us stuff. Maybe it's not just about you though. Maybe it's more for someone else? OK, so maybe not too! Anyway, you are right on how I usually am, and I think it still kind of applies in this situation!

Jaime-HECK YES that is the most important, although, not the non-concussed part, the getting her out part! Your word verification is just applying to how much you have to pee since you are pregnant!!!

Are you trying to earn the award for most injuries? Because I think you're pretty darned close.
