Getting older sucks. I am 30 years old, yet my body feels like I am 60. Let me explain.
This weekend the softball team that I will be playing with beginning in April had it's first practice. Now I am an athletic person that has been involved with sports my whole life, even though over the last year I have let myself go quite a bit. After 2 hours of fielding ground balls, chasing down drives cranked to the outfield, and about 50 or more swings at the plate, my body is in pain. My muscles ache so bad it is stupid. Why does growing old have to suck so bad?
I will say getting out on the old ball diamond did feel good. Is there a better place? I don't know how good our team will be, but you can bet on me having a great time. Looks as though I will be moving from Third Base this year, to Second. I am up for it.
Sunday, there was a birthday party that my wife and I attended. The party was at a bowling alley, so my already hurting body now aches a little more. How sad is it, when you get aches from bowling? I am pathetic. I bowled a 160, 110, and a 125. I was pissed. I usually average a 160. However, it was fun. I still am in awe of the majority of people you find in a bowling facility. The chicks there are HOT!
Well, now I am sitting in my chair at work, hurting, and smelling like ICY HOT. Getting old sucks.
