… is not exactly what I’ve been doing with my free time, but if I said what I was actually coaching, it would identify my school. (Also, isn’t softball super cool? I always liked softball. Let’s pretend I’m coaching softball.)
I love our team and am super excited about our season, but try-outs were a little intense this year. They dominated my week. I’m not sure anyone ever saw me doing anything except rushing across fields, classrooms, and generally looking preoccupied, carrying arm-fulls of checklists.
It was to the point where one could actually have been fooled into thinking I had a busy schedule, and those of you who regularly read this blog are aware that that’s not usually a true fact. (Pro tip: that’s never the case when you update your blog 4 times a week.)
THANK GOD THAT’S OVER.
Now I can turn my attention from “crushing people’s dreams of playing 1st base” and “feeling guilty about crushing people’s dreams of playing 1st base” to things like “neuroanatomy”, which is apparently a thing that I am supposed to know.
The thing about neuroanatomy is that I’ve actually taken it before. Boyfriend and I met in our undergrad’s brain dissection lab. So you’d think, having already learned this stuff once, I’d know things, but trust me – it does not help.
(… Well, unless you count astute moments like, “*nudge* Psst. Rostrum means ‘nose’.” to be helpful. But if so, I can tell you right now that the people I sit next to do not seem to agree.)
Their loss. Rostrum’s a pretty neat word.
Well. What could you be coaching that would give the school away?The Med School:
Bull Riding Team?
Please tell us…
Ha! I really would, but our dean just sent out an e-mail sternly reminding us all that we are obligated to represent our school professionally in public spaces.
I don’t see how my blog is that unprofessional, but I could definitely see people disagreeing with me. Better safe than sorry!
(But damn, I wish *I* had thought of Parkour Team! I totally should’ve claimed to be captain of the Parkour team!)
Pole Dancing Team?
Semi-Nude Male Dance Team?
Mud Wrestling Team?
‘Gator Wrestling Team?
Roller Derby Team? -( but one of those has a lawyer on it so that COULDN’T be it)
I could go on like this all day…..
