8/3/15 Paintball Bruises

Jamie made plans to go paint balling the day after Megan and Joe’s wedding.

He coerced his older brother, Mike, into going with.

Mike was in the wedding party, and when high noon came to the paintball field, he was really rueing his decision to play. But, he stuck it out, got hit right away, and went to have some Gatorade.

Jamie, meanwhile, was camped out in a little house as the “last man standing” when some joker got him from behind and lit him up. Mind you, in paint ball, you’re supposed to hit the opponent ONE TIME.


This son-of-a-seabiscuit hammered Jamie with 3 rapid, point-blank shots. Yes, Jamie was wearing the appropriate paintball protection, and I can just imagine if he hadn’t been!

Jamie certainly is “tough enough” to take it, but he was a bit miffed that the guy shot him 3 times. He said, “That’s a bit of overkill, isn’t it?” Playing by the rules has always been important to Jamie.

I wish other people felt the same way.

Woof! Love, Maggie

PS Jamie took a pen and made the bruises into, “Ho Ho Ho”. He retains his sense of humor!

    Eeeeek! I’ve seen other welts from paintball attacks on people & I could never understand why they would want to go through that or play. Oh well, each to their own I suppose. 🙂
