My Mom Loved the Roller Derby!

Like daughter like mother, apparently. Last Sunday, yes Father's Day, my mom, the BFF and I went to the local roller derby bout. It was just as intense and fun and awesome as I'd remembered, and my mom loved it.

There was even chocolate covered bacon on a stick to be had. As many of you know from my 'Possum Queen carny days, fried stuff on a stick is a rare treat for me, but surprisingly, I wasn't enticed to try these.

Along with chocolate covered breakfast meats, there was a local live band.

Saints of Sorrow
I didn't get too close for fear of being labeled a groupie. I'm much too old and dignified for that. So I pretended I was taking a picture of the guy in front's butt. The band was good, and even had my mom bopping along to the heavy metal beat.

Mom was so into the whole experience that she even wore one of my coveted home-team jerseys to the bout. I wore this one. And the BFF got me an entirely new one that night for my birthday!! Check it out!

Do you feel the mash up love?
So a great time was had by all. Including my seventy year old mother.

She visited for two weeks from Montana, and left two days ago. That, along with bylaw revisions, finaling in a writing contest and the wrap up of the two environmental field days I ran for 183 and 132 kids respectively, the final days of the school year for my Urchins,  and my oldest Urchin's dance recital tonight, I have been regretfully absent from my blog.

But that will change. All the lovely crazy that I can cram in will be here in future days. Though, I have vowed to take more time for my writing, so I may slip some more of that in here around all the lunacy. We'll see how that works.

So what have you been up to for the past few weeks? Inquiring mind (my own) wants to know!

You've been seriously busy. Your mom sounds like great fun.
What about the writing contest? I didn't hear about that.

Ah, it's the old Just-taking-a-picture-of-the-guy's-butt ploy. No one will ever suspect you're a groupie. There must be something wrong with me 'cause chocolate-covered bacon on a stick sounds REALLY GOOD!! I would totally have eaten some.
I'm glad you had a fun time with your mom. :-)

Yes, it's been monumentally busy over here at Chez Quinn. And Mom had a great time with the Urchins.

I just found out a week and a few days ago. I had a week to do any revisions I wanted to, and resubmit. (Which I did.) Now it goes to Emilia Pisani at Gallery Books for ranking of the winners. I'll find out where I fall at the beginning of August. I just have to put it out of my mind until then or drive myself crazy. lol!

Ava Quinn said...

Thanks, Lexa. And oy, I'm not as brave as you are with the chocolate covered breakfast meats! You go, girl! lol!

So glad you got to reward yourself with some crazy fun after being so crazy busy. (And I for one am looking forward to seeing more “lovely crazy” popping up here at TIC in the coming dog days of summer.) Congrats on getting to the contest finals! That’s exciting!

Thanks, Delynn! :)
