I Am Lame.

I've officially entered the land of Lamedom. Today a bunch of people from work are going to a Thirsty Thursday game at PGE Park. While I appreciate that I was invited, I declined.

Why?

Well, one, I need to go home and let little Tater out to pee. His bladder just can't hold it that long. Two, it's cold and windy outside. Burr! Three, I just don't feel like drinking to get drunk and spending a lot of money to do it. Which is what these kinds of events always turn into for me. Four, I really want to go to the library and pick up my books that are on hold waiting for me. It will be much warmer in there.

Interestingly, I'm not horrified by attaining residency in Lamedom. I'm rather pleased about it actually.

Why?

One, I said no to something I really don't want to do, despite the fact that these people may reject me and never invite me to something again. Two, I won't have a hangover in the morning. Three, I'll still have money in my bank account in the morning. Three, I'll be warm.

The only downfall: missing out on some fun bonding time with my coworkers. Ah hell! I can do that tomorrow at work.

Lamedom? How about smartdom?

I've done Thirsty Thursday. It was fun the one time that I did it. Will I do it again? Probably not.

Personally, I can't think of anything more lame than religiously going to Thirsty Thursday.

Let's count the ways in which it's lame.

You go to a baseball game that you don't watch because you're busy getting hammered.

You waste money on crappy beer.

You drink crappy beer and get hungover for Friday morning.

You have to hold all the pee in because you hate going to the bathroom because it takes 30-45 minutes to get back in again.

Once or twice is fine. It's fun to socialize and stuff, but marking every TT on your calendar and getting hammered religiously is, well, just plain retarded.

I concur with Carlos. I know, it's a shock. :)

I wouldn't call it lame. I'd call it a mature decision.

and such is life . . . reality, not the tv show comedy about firends . . .

some one or somewhere we feel the pressure to go, go , go - and how could you pass something up that is fun!

Well, when fun is outweighed by something that you are garunteed to get satisfaction out of, the choice is clear.

Like everyone else said - not lame, smart and very familiar sounding!
