Something's Not Right...

A very strange thing happened on Wednesday.

I went to my oldest son's practice for his travel baseball team and there were *gasp* girls on the fields. As in, Wednesdays are softball night at the fields.

I then realized I've never been there on a softball night. I knew almost none of the parents. And the actual air felt different. Very different. I swear I could feel the estrogen floating about and instead of making me more comfortable (as one might assume) it freaked me the hell out. I felt VERY uncomfortable. The balance of the universe was off. In fact, it was so bad I had to get out of there. There was cheering and screeching and... pink. Nothing I'm used to.

So I left and went to lacrosse practice where there were all boys and parents I recognized. The testosterone was comforting and the world was right again.

Is this not the oddest thing you've ever heard? I was there and I still find it odd. Very odd.

I get along much better with the mom's of gameboys friends than those of The Princess.
I also historically have done better with boys as friends than girls. Some of us are just wired different.

I totally get this. I've never been a real "girly" girl, and have never really felt comfortable in "girly world." Which must be why God had the wisdom to send me boys.
