Nancy Drew Blood & the Case of the Bulging Biceps
Friday night I participated in my first ever official 5 Borough Ladies Arm Wrestling competition, under the guise of Nancy Drew Blood, flanked by the finest, fiercest entourage of girl detectives a gal could ask for. We all had a wild time and raised money for a good cause, Callen Lorde’s HOTT.
Let’s just say this was the best night ever. What could be better that a tiny room full of strong ladies, strong drinks, bribes, multiple dance-offs, arm wrastlin’ with both left and right arms, terrific puns and personas, cheering, chanting, screaming, theme songs, magnifying glasses, and plenty of fake blood for all? I’m so elated that I stumbled into this madness, what a night! And, if this sounds like a dream come true to you too, be sure to read the New York Times article all about it, called A Lighter Side of Arm Wrestling, for Charity, Sport, and Feminism. (And yes, that is Nancy Drew Blood duking out in the article’s photo.)
Go 5BLAW go, and wrists up, ladies!
