The Boys Are Back In Town
The game is starting but I am not at the field yet and I am feeling a bit crazed about it. I should be smart and not play this year. I should sit it out because I don’t recover the way I used to but I love playing.
I am not old. I can still run. I can move and make an impact. I am not ready to lie down and give up, but I can’t ignore the clock and the impact of all of the years of pounding upon my body.
It will hurt tomorrow and the day after, but the adrenaline rush that comes today is powerful.
Fell in love with a post I wrote The Secret Behind Post Secret- Everyone Has A Story because it really touched a nerve for me. It is part of the click I have been waiting for.
Can’t find my cleats, where are my cleats. Yeah, I know my mind is bouncing around but I am always a bundle of energy. Sometimes you can feel the sparks fly off of me.
Live, love and laugh is the goal.
Can’t wait to see the guys. Don’t see most but a few times a year and today is one of them. Chance to say hi, catch up and remember what it was like to be in college, young and stupid.
Mix in the present and the joy of talking about what we do now, fun times. Got to run the boys are back in town.

The words “I can’t find my cleats!” are spoken with awful frequency in my house. Meanwhile. . .who cares how old you are? Play ’til you drop!

“Play till you drop” is the kind of motto I can get behind.

I should do this stream of conciousness thing sometime. I guess it’s basically what I already do, without the rules. Fun read! I hope you had fun with the boys! I agree that self-promotion is a bit awkward, but necessary too.

It is a lot of fun. I highly encourage joining in.

When the boys are back in town, you have to go hang!
Hope you enjoyed it!

Hi A. Eye,
It was great, loved it. Hope you had a good Sunday.

I should do this, I really should, but I agonize over every word editing each sentence as I go along. I am afraid I would break the rules. Have fun with the boys!
Jack November 19, 2012 at 1:11 am
You should do it. Sometimes you just have to give yourself permission to just write. It is a lot of fun and I bet you would really enjoy it.

Your stream if consciousness is a wonderful storehouse! 🙂 Keep them coming.
Mine is just loads of noise…

I am sure yours has more substance than you give yourself credit for.

I’ll be in a socializing with friends later this week where I’ll have to admit that something has changed and I can’t even drink a glass wine anymore without getting a headache that’s not worth it. But it will be fun to catch up. So I say have fun with your friends and be careful.
Jack November 19, 2012 at 1:09 am
Yeah, we talked about that today. The foolish men we used to be could really put it away, but not any more and that is ok.

Have fun. You ARE getting older. I love good friends where you can laugh and tell all the remember whens.
Jack November 19, 2012 at 1:07 am
Getting older, but not old. It was a lot of fun.
