While she goes off to have a good time, what does the dog do?  Stays home to take care of the house.  Not fair!

New Movie:

" Monarchs Entertainment"


Puppy slide show



2 August 2005

If you're looking for lurid or lewd details, you'll have to go elsewhere, but I lost my virginity last night.

Now it may seem strange to think of a mother of 5 "losing her virginity" at the ripe old age of 62, but when Ellen and Shelly discovered I'd never been to a Monarch's game (the Monarchs are Sacramento's women's professional basketball team), they pronounced me a Monarchs Virgin and proceeded to help me lose my virginity.

Someone had given them four tickets so they invited me and Pat, who has been my partner working the prize table at the Gay Pride picnic for the past several years.

We left.

The Monarchs were playing the Lynx, a Minnesota team and from all I'd been told by Ellen and Shelly, the game was secondary to all the other stuff going on in the stadium.  They were right.

For starters it was a good place to people-watch.

These guys, for instance.  The guy on the right shouted "DEE-FENCE" throughout the entire game.  He left before it ended and I'll be willing to bet he has no voice at all tomorrow.

It may be that ticket prices are astronomical and it costs a fortune to buy any food, but other than making it virtually impossible for lower income families to attend, the Monarchs do include little kids in their games.  A lot.   It seemed that every time one team took a time out, a troop of little kids would get on the floor and start dancing.

And then there was the Monarchs' mascot, Monty, who was everywhere.

There was even an inflatable Monty.  (There is a movie snippet of the entertainment here)

Throughout the game, things were dropped from the ceiling, given out to groups, shot out of canons and slung into the crowd from gigantic sling shots

Oh yeah--and there was even a basketball game.

I have to admit that I enjoyed this women's basketball game more than the men's that I've seen, which lately have seemed to me to be part basketball, part gymnastics, with all of that swinging from the hoops.  Nobody swung from the hoop last night, it was just a lot of good ball-playing.

Best of all, the Monarchs won, 67-54.  Everyone left happy.

When it was all over, we got in the car and drove back to Davis, where we had a lovely thai dinner at one of our five or so Thai restaurants, and then I came home again, happy to know that finally--after all these years--I'm not a virgin any more.
