Stages of Injury

Anger: WTF, Dude! Get out of the f*cking way! Don’t touch me! Denial: What was that? My bone is sticking out? It’s just a scratch. I’ll be fine. I just need to finish this game.

I quit kickball a year ago.  No, I wasn’t a sixth grader moving on to junior high, leaving elementary school recess behind.  At the time, I was 30 years old and had been playing adult kickball recreationally for four and a half years.  I know what you’re thinking: she got old, she got hurt, she […]
