You'll Shoot Your Eye Out

I have another "first" to add to the list.  

If you remember, last weekend's firsts were snowshoeing and karaoke.  

This weekend?

Paint-balling.  No joke.

The last and only time that I've ever shot a gun was back in October 2010.  I told you all about it HERE.

Luckily, I purposely did not look up "paintball" on YouTube before I went.  Because I would have probably talked myself out of going.
Aren't we bad ass?
Baggy clothes. Not a good look for me. 
What did I learn?

I'm a hider.

I now realize that my hide-n-seek skills that I perfected so many years ago has finally paid off.

I would get myself into a nice little hiding place and then peek out occasionally and shoot the other team.  If you get hit, you're "out" and have to leave the game. Most of the games we played, I would usually be the last one left.  I did get hit twice. Once on the head (OUCH!) and the shoulder.
Me.  Hiding.
One thing that I also noticed was what a GREAT workout it is.  I was huffing and puffing.  Lots of squats and crawling around.

Will I do it again?  Probably not.  Call me sexist, but I'll leave this one for the guys.


  1. FUN!!!! :) Looks like we both had the same movie on our mind tonight... lol I won a major award... lol

  3. Gosh I feel like I can say I know a professional sniper! lol I love this. Made me laugh.

  4. I'm a pro hider too! So much so that both times I've gone paint-balling, I've never been hit. Wuss! lol. Keep up the new things, it keeps life exciting!

  6. You look like you had fun...I am to wimpy it looks like it could hurt getting shot!
