What sports did you play as a child?
Believe it or not, I DID play a sport as a child. I played softball! I was actually pretty good. Not at the level of Suz's daughter, but good. I had quite a powerful swing, and could hit it out of the park. Now, I didn't so much like the running that came immediately after that, but I dealt with it.
For those of you not in the know, softball is a HUGE thing here in Chicago. Years ago, my sister's then-husband sponsored a softball team that we all played on. It was a mixed league, so you needed to have a minimum number of women, which is how my sister suckered me into it. I agreed to bat, but my brother-in-law had to agree to be my pinch-runner. That's exactly what we did! It was actually a lot of fun. We sucked, but we didn't care. We only won one game that season, and that was only because it was by forfeit. Eh, whatever!
