Just Regular Folk

Although I haven't been there in quite a while, I have to give a shout out to the Meetup gamers group I visited several times.  Only Meg went, and no-one ever had a single word to say about her that was not in line with what they might say about any other member of the group.  No-one avoided her, or didn't want to play with her, or display any unfriendly manner.  In fact, I always felt welcome as a girl at the meetups.  I don't know what they said behind my back, but I'm sure it was all good.

They have irregular "girl gamer" nights and although I've thought about joining, so far I have not, for three reasons:
  1. I haven't been to any of their game nights since the "girl nights" started
  2. I don't want to change the dynamic of the group. I may not, but I may
  3. They're all way younger than I am.
But maybe one week I'll e-mail the organiser and ask if she'd mind if I join the next game day.  I'll point out that I'm somewhat different from the other girls (see (2) and (3), above).

As the first "civilian" group I spent some comfortable Meg time with, they have to go on the list.


  1. Meg -

    I can't wait to see how well you're accepted by the women's gaming meetup.....


    1. I also get annual invites to a "young lawyers" breakfast, from our state senator (who's actually met Meg and knows me by name). I am neither, and if I chose to go I'd probably call to ask if I'd fit in (in drab even).


My day is brighter when I hear from my friends!
