Over the weekend, I somehow got invited to a dodgeball tournament.

This is surreal on so many levels. Hello? Arvay is not coordinated. Hello? Arvay is an unpopular nerd who Always Gets Picked Last For The Team. Yes, I was one of those as a child! Yet somehow I got invited by a popular, athletic sprint musher who works at a well-respected local sports store. Me! I got picked! I knew that, with my lack of athletic prowess, I'd have nothing to contribute, but I just had to go, you see.

I went on a lark, expecting that it would be low-key fun involving beer. Imagine my surprise to find that most of the other teams were totally serious and beer-less and crazy good at dodgeball! So we immediately got squarely beaten and eliminated within half an hour. Oh well!

Here we are, Silke's Samurais!

I Got Picked For the Dodgeball Team! I totally sucked, but I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me! :~D

Just glad you had a good time and not get hurt

Beer-less and crazy about dodgeball... your team should have won by default!
