"Well, there goes your social life!"

As I’ve mentioned before, Dave and I are on a dodgeball team, aptly called “Dodge Our Balls”.

What’s great about it, is that even though balls are flying at you from every direction, is that the balls are really soft, so you can’t really get hurt. Or so you think!

We had a game on Thursday against two really good teams, and one of the teams were the biggest douche bags ever. Like, took the game waaaayyy too seriously. Anyway, we’re playing and playing and playing, and all of a sudden, WHAM!!!!! I get pounded in the face with the ball. Pain shoots through my face and when I got off the court, and Dave checked on me, we noticed my nose was bleeding slightly. Well, not really like, bleeding, but like, some blood coming out of my nose. Exciting, right?

When I came back in, the ref gave me an ice pack, and the other team that wasn’t currently playing asked me if I was ok. (There are three teams that play, in a round-robin.) But the team that hit me? Not one of them asked if I was ok, apologized, etc. I know it wasn’t on purpose, but give me a break! Be a man, and ask if I’m ok!!

So for the rest of the game from the bench, my boss (who can’t play because she’s pregnant – but her husband plays) and I yelled profanities and were bad sports to that team. Now that Arielle is in Boston and can’t trash talk with me anymore during recreational sports, I’m glad that my 5 months pregnant boss can.

Oh and that picture of a bruise? That’s not from dodgeball. That’s from me walking full speed into my open cabinet door. Smooooooooooth.

*And if you get the quote that’s in my title, you’re awesome. 🙂


  1. Glad to know you’re ok! I was once playing basketball with the guys and (being the brilliant person I am) tried to rebound over a 6’5″ foot guy (I’m 5’5″). Ended up pushing him forward so he missed the ball and the basketball came down on my face. Ended up with nothing more than a mild concussion…but sports can be dangerous!
    I get bruises like that TONS…I’m VERY accident prone..whether it’s walking into a wall or tripping on a crack in the sidewalk or over my puppy (LOL!)
    Have a fabulous weekend!

    “My doctor told me to stay away from activities where BALLS are FLYING AT MY FACE…”

    Clueless is the best movie everrrrrr. Okay, not ever, but still damn good.

  3. I was just about to comment that that quote was one of the ones I only got upon repeat viewings of that movie after I was a teenager that I completely missed watching when I was younger. Genius 🙂

    And I hope your nose is better! Dodgeball scares me a little.

  4. Duh, Clueless.

    My plastic surgeon doesn’t want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose.

    Well there goes your social life!

    Whatever, Clueless was on TV like 2 weeks ago.

  5. Clueless! One of the best movies ever. I have it on VHS. How totally 90s of me, huh?

    I hope you get the chance to bruise some of those douche bags from the other team soon.

    (Um… sorry… i accidently commented as Andrew earlier b/c i didn’t realize he was signed in to google.)

  6. LOL! I, too, was sitting with a bloody nose due to a dodge ball competition! Ha!

    That’s a nasty bruise–damn cabinet doors!

  7. Damn that’s a serious bruise. More like “balls of fury.” I love your dodgeball team’s name. Awesome.

    What’s asses! I’m glad you were alright. As for the bruise, sounds exactly like how I would acquire a bruise. It’s ridiculous how many bruises I can get.
