ok you guys,
i have been drinking.

ASIDE FROM THIS: i am also now apparently pitching for my work softball league. this is a stressful responsibility and if anyone has been a softball pitcher before (slow pitch), please bestow your wisdom on me so that i might prosper and beat the other guy. a good sound beating. advice welcome. youtube videos of skillful pitching welcome. youtube videos generally welcome.


I AM AFRAID OF HITTING SOMEONE IN THE TUMMY
LIKE WITH A SOFTBALL
it's a bit scary. but i'm going to work hard. for victory. i spelled victory with an "s" the first four times i typed that, goodnight.

<3 <3 <3


p.s. VIDEOS

IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE PERSON AIM FOR THE HEAD

IF YOU DON'T HATE THE PERSON AIM FOR THE UMPIRE'S HEAD

The only advice I ever got was: keep your fingers on the seams, and try to spin it out of your hand instead of just tossing it. Also follow through; don't stop moving your arm once the ball's out of your hand. ALSO ALSO VISUALIZE IT GOING PAST WHERE YOU WANT IT TO GO. Please keep in mind that I have not thrown a baseball since I was 12 though, and never for a legitimate team, and I was not very good at it anyway.

GOODNIGHT ♥

Follow through! See, this is good advice. I knew you were the correct people to turn to in my hour of sporting need.

I BET YOU WERE AWESOME.

lolololol I LOVE YOU


And because I love you I would dispense wisdom of the softball variety by the TRUCKLOAD, but since I haven't played it since like, middle school, it would be complete conjecture.

I HOPE YOU TAKE THIS GIF IN HELPFUL SOFTBALL VIDEO'S STEAD



p.s. and for your private behind the scenes ahead of time and privileged knowledge, guess what tomorrow's challenge is going to be at ttu. i'll give you a hint: it rhymes with the shamster. WE ARE V. EXCITED ABOUT IT.

You say that, but actually this is just a ploy to get you to write as many fics as possibly possible featuring my favorite Team TARDIS in the ENTIRE WORLD.

LET ME KNOW IF IT WORKS LOL

(I'll also accept anything from the Calender verse, which is Masterish because I KNOW HE IS IN THERE SOMEWHERE, LURKING, ORANGE, YOU CANNOT MAKE ME THINK OTHERWISE.)

For Great Victory!

This will help: I got hit in the head with a softball pitch once.

No, wait, that doesn't help.

THIS will help: Aw, come on, it's just softball. It's not like you're hitting 'em with a baseball!

No, this really will help:

You'll be great. The person you hit with the softball will still be your friend years later. (And your team will secretly kind of love you for it).

No, really, THIS will help:

HAVE FUN! Hooray for you, pitcher!

Hahahaha I love this. Did... it hurt? Getting whacked? That's a dumb question. But I am curious. I don't think our league has a batting helmet. We are embarrassingly poor. ;____;

I WILL TAKE YOUR ADVICE, COACH! ♥
