I am one of those people who gets talked into doing things that I really don’t want to because I am not good at saying no.
Well, want to know something I am even worse at? Softball. I let my brother (a manager at the plant) talk me into signing up for the Red Dragons, and there’s no backing out now.
We had practice last night, and even though I know I am not particularly good, I did better. I actually hit the ball (multiple times!) and can catch. Throwing is hard because my hand strength is pretty much non-existent when I need it. Either way, it has been fun. Pretty sure this rain is going to cancel our game for tomorrow, but that’s not surprising in May in Kansas.
My co-workers have been awesome. This league is non-competitive, and even though I know a few of the guys WANT to win (who doesn’t!?) they don’t let that make them push us (the girls) any harder to be better. It’s definitely a “team building” experience so far!
