I miss roller derby. I miss the creativity, the entrepreneurial, grassroots, DIY spirit. I miss the positive energy, the support, the exercise. I miss the girls, my best friends, my derby wives and team. And yes, I miss taking girls out. I miss that perfect hit that sends Valtron 3000 out of bounds. I miss everything… everything but the knee injuries.
So, all I have now is My Derby Wife Merlot and the amazing wine guests who stroll in and recount their personal experiences with derby. This week, in walked a colleague of the best co-cappie I ever had Carmen Getsome. It was such a delight to chat with him, meet his friends, and see how spirited he was about the sport. As a sports therapist he’s been helping the injured girls on Grave Danger heal and strengthen from their injuries. I wish he didn’t have to see that side of derby, but that’s a huge part of it.
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have an amazing time at Carmen’s wedding. I wish with all of my heart that I could be there.
