This week has been pretty busy with extra cirricular activities outside the office. My company sponsors volunteer events with an organization that has foster home/ halfway houses. Part of the gig is that we go out with the boys every month to some kind of event like bowling, games or some other inane thing. Its normally a goood time.
Anyway, last night I went out with the group. There was this guy there who I thought was one of the "kids." So I was sitting by the go-karts and he told me he was graduating. So I said, "So what are you doing after graduation?" He said, " I am getting my teaching credential." Strike! Turns out he was one of the staff and he is my age. I thought he was an 18 year old boy. I feel like such an ass telling him about my "senior year."
Tonight was another function sponsored by the same organization. Adults only. Ryan went with me. We had a pretty good time. We were asked if we were dating, and I laughed and told everyone my boyfriend couldnt make it. We were invited to another function that we will probably be going to. We meaning hopefully Aaron, but Ryan said he would be back up. I love Ryan. He is someone you can always count on in your time of need.
After the function we went to my softball game. We lost the game - surprisingly not mercied. Ryan was a breakout hit. He couldn't bat to save his life but turned out to be a pretty decent pitcher. We had a lot of people that I didnt recognize. It was a good time. We have a double header next week and Ryan said he would come out again. Good times! Play Ball!
When we got to the field I saw the Chris the umpire. When I spoke to the last umpire he told me that Chris wasn't with them anymore. So when I saw him I ran up to him we exchanged hellos and we hugged. He gave me a funny look but I couldn't figure out why. Then he said "BTW I am not Chris, but I'll take the hug anyway." Strike. I hugged an almost stranger. I had met him previously but hadn't spoken to him really.
2 strikes one more left. I have one more meeting to go to. Lets see how that goes.
And then there were four
