the post-fleetball report

The game itself was fun. Teams started out as the four "old guys" (ages 40+) versus the four "kids" (ages 14-15). But the old guys quickly asserted their knowledge of the unconventional strategy of fleetball and scored a bunch of touchdowns. So we mixed it up with 2 old guys and 2 kids on each team, and it was much more even from there on out.

No big injuries, beyond the standard "I'm going to feel that tomorrow" overexertion. I did drag the toe of my foot through the dirt while attempting a kickoff. You usually don't take divots on kickoffs, but this was an exception :-)

Today I'm a little sore and stiff in the legs and the back, but a couple days of working out and stretching should ease that pain. So I think we can call fleetball a rousing success! All had a good time, and were interested in playing again in the future.

SALE! to Kaleidotrope!

Kaleidotrope is buying my story "Visiting the Ladies Room Exhibit at the Human Museum" for a future issue.

Since they publish twice a year, it might be a little time before it comes out (end of 2009 or start of 2010). But it's my *first* print sale! Totally awesome!

That's a nice start to the year, if I do say so myself. Woohoo!

ETA: Forgot to mention that the story was originally inspired by this picture at 52 Stories, a "picture story prompt" site.
