i was not in the market for new ones.
but when they find you, and they make you all cozy and happy...
it's just kinda nice... and you just kinda wanna keep them.
it's a bonus, you know?
when you meet aMAZing people through things that suck the life out of you.
i mean, if i have to have zero "me" time in this world, at least it can be filled with lots of awesomely amazing chicks.
last year was great. this year even better. being a veteran football mom meant i already knew a lot of what it took to be a new football parent. and when you know at the end of the season that you became family by the end of it all... well... it makes entering into a new season that much easier. if we're gonna meet eventually, let's get the show on the road.
and if they drop the f-bomb mid conversation... well, we're bonded for life.
i don't know what it is with me and that word, but... it's the only word i know of that can send the vibe across i need to feel in order to be completely comfortable with someone i meet. you know... i know exactly what it is. i use that word a lot. A LOT. i think i just need to know if i drop it randomly into our conversation that you won't be mad at me. or think i'm trashy. or crass. or vulgar.
although, i'm human.
but we all are to some extent.
i just know it.
what i'm trying to say is that i'm lucky. i've met some great new gals through this sport, and when you figure out how much this team cost me and divide it by TWO players (myself included), i think my wallet came out on top.
and the best part?
we haven't even had our first game yet.
(i.e. lots of season left to go)
we're just already so cozy. so F*@&ing cozy.
love and friendship finds you when you least expect it to.
