Being able to say “I fucking hate you right now” and be laughed at.
Knowing that the person I’m saying that to knows I mean it with all love and affection.
Being challenged in my skills.
Leaving my house feeling cruddy, coming back in an amazing mood.
Being able to wear rainbow ruffle butt shorts.
Having random women fluff said rainbow ruffle butt shorts and it being just part of the day.
Knowing that this is not just a sport, not just a team, but also another family.
I love my derby family.
I miss my Sirens – but I love my Gold Pain Girls
