And. . .Groupies are Born! Home Free!

I was a little bit of a weird kid. I never really had any idols. My heart didn't pound at the mention of any particular singer. I didn't swoon just thinking about popular actors or ripped athletes. Which, quite honestly, befuddled my friends who plastered their bedroom walls with magazine photos of all the latest heartthrobs.

Oh, I admired people, though. Writers, mostly. . .Laura Ingalls Wilder (of course!), Maya Angelou, Chaim Potok. And I had favorite singers and actors, too.  Throw in a few athletes, and I had a good group of people I wouldn't have minded eating dinner with.

But giddy? Heart thumping? Dizzy? Nope. Just wasn't my style.

Real Isn't How You Are Made

BunnySomeone asked me something recently. Something that hasn't been asked in awhile.

And though I've fielded the question, or one dang close too it, dozens of times, it still caught me off-guard as I stood there, disbelieving that it had reared it's ugly head again and frantically searching my mind for the "right way" to respond.

Instead of finding the calm, gentle, I-know-you-mean-no-harm words I used to be able to produce in such awkward circumstances, however, I sort of shut down.

Baseball Bliss

I never thought I'd end up a Little League Mom.  Soccer is, and always has been, my sport (playing, watching, coaching and ref-ing!).  To make matters worse, I grew up hearing VERY sketchy stories of Little League parents getting into fisticuffs, coaches degrading kids worse than a sadistic drill sergeant, and teammates berating each other at every blessed opportunity.

I'm happy to report that our experience so far has not lived up to that nefarious reputation!

It's actually been a joy.
