Randomness has struck again, my friend.
This past week I went to a Mud Hens game with my dad and a couple friends. I don't know about your local minor league games, but ours are rockin'! I enjoy baseball (it was on my summer list remember), but even more I enjoy the time with friends and hanging out in the wonderful outdoors.
But one of the best things is the little in-between games they play with the spectators. Are you picking up where this is going?
I walked myself over to the Customer Service booth and asked "Where do I sign up for the games?"
"Well.....here, fill this out, but I think they picked everyone already."
"They might call you if someone doesn't show up."
"You never know!"
A couple innings later.....Oh I missed a call. I wonder.....you guessed it, someone didn't show up! Yeah!!!!
Myself and three other people ended up playing one of the minute to win it games.
I think I look like a distressed pirate. Ha ha ha. Side note: There's my Tiffany's necklace!
I had to get the cookie from my forehead to my mouth without using my hands. It's not as easy as it sounds. Wait. I don't think it even sounds easy.
A little more serious in this picture, but boy do I look like a dork! These pictures are begging for crazy captions. GO!
I was soooo close! But alas, I failed. They did give me a prize, though!
I posted this pic on my Facebook page, proud of my accomplishment. That's when I started getting the..."I saw you!" "I was wondering if that was you!" "I told my friends I knew that girl". Oh Toledo, the little big city where you go to a random baseball game and end up knowing a dozen people there.
What did I learn from this experience:
1) I loved every second of it!
2) I will totally do it again. (Technically that was my second time being pulled down to the field for a game.)
3) I'm glad I wore a cute shirt.4) The cheek muscles are the key to get the cookie from the forehead to the mouth.
