Fair Cop; Masochist
what were the words to that again?
hashing affect your memory, or maybe just your overall brain?
This question was apparently answered on last Monday’s run, but more
on that later.
hashers trekked north for the first trail laid by Masochist (with a little
help from Fair Cop). A good number of hashers arrived and milled
around for awhile until it was time to set off.
Just as we were leaving however a car drove up containing Rear Entry
and Spy Shagger, back from the nuptials in Ukraine. The newlyweds joined the runners and off they
went. I’d like to tell you about the
run, but I wasn’t on, a victim of bad knees.
Rumor had it that it contained some hills, some straight parts, and
some bushes. The walk wound nicely
though the neighborhood contained some vicious dogs, and a shy tortoise. Walkers returned and hung out for awhile waiting
for the runners to straggle in.
circle was quickly commenced as there was a lot of business to attend too.
Masochist was commended for his first trail. A number of offenses on trail where handed out,
including Rear Entry for his “short-cut” up a hill and resulting bleeding
without permission. Several awards
were passed out: The penis went from Clitoria to Spanish Fly, who is staying
in Athens for her vacation and needed something to amuse herself with; Shit
of the Week from Scarlet Pimp to Rear Entry, SP had added a pair of goggles
and felt the Rear Entry, as a newly wed, could find a use for them. A virgin hasher, Kevin, Jamaican by way of America was welcomed.
Several returning hashers were welcomed back, including Kum Kwik, Scrubber,
and Stress Cow. Then, the always tradition laden circle was
privileged to be able to celebrate not one, but two, time honored hash ceremonies.
First, to honor the newly-weds, Rear Entry and Spy Shagger were called
into the circle. RA S4S came forward to perform the ceremony.
However, the normally eloquent and loquacious S4S could not remember
the words! After several long pulls on his beer to collect
himself S4S was able to complete the ceremony and the happy couple pledged
undying lust for each other. Then it
was time for a naming. Sophie was scheduled
to return to the U.S.
and it was determined she shouldn’t go without a name. The GM, your faithful scribe, requested the
honor of doing the naming ceremony. Various
names were debated. Sophie’s affinity
for the Greek police was noted (in just five weeks she has had more run-ins
with the Greek police then all other Americans at the embassy put together.)
Her love for ferrets was also noted.
As Sophie sat freezing her butt off in bucket of water all these things
were looked at, various names were debated and rejected.
Finally, a decision was made, but the RA couldn’t remember the words
to the naming ceremony! After trying
the words to knight somebody, and the oath of the President of the U.S. the GM finally
gave up and asked for assistance from the RA. In the end, all was taken care of and Sophie
was given the name Ferret Dodger. After
an announcement on the upcoming Island weekend
it was off to Taverna.
week it’s on the Spata and a Bookmaker run.
