HASH SHIT: Dizzy
This week’s hash was at one of our favourite haunts- Diplo. As in previous times, our agile and crafty hares managed to carve out an untrodden trail within the familiar. Initially, the drone of the traffic drowned the calls for the checks so we who were further behind, never really knew when they were found. Alice said it is a trail she used to lay quite long time ago however the last bit took a twist and took us to a different route (somehow familiar yet uncertain).
The trail had all the elements of a typical tropical jungle trail: some dry stretches, some muddy bits, some ups and some downs- making it a challenging yet doable run.
Somehow on this trail, hashers seemed introspective , almost meditative in their walk. Why one wonders? Was it because the haze had enveloped everything insight and created a heavy stillness? Or, was it because people were so absorbed in their own thoughts that our own reveries were not interrupted by the usual more audible chatter that tends to pepper our previous runs? Or, was it because there were fewer hashers on this run? This is our time, our place, and our joy and we all eagerly owned it in our own unique way.
After everyone freshen up and back to the tent, the usual welcome to FTG, announcement, joke (told by the first time joker-Smurf~a good one! ) done at the shout up, we were greeted by a table generously laden with an array of goodies for everyone- the active and cautious, as well as for the decadent and indulgent. Bring a plate is always a roaring success. Many thanks fellow hashers for delighting our palettes.
Thanks also go to Anna, our front horn who lead the way and pointed us in the right direction and backhorn Margaret, who patiently waited and herded us safely back. Dizzy, yet again, received the hashshit and she took it bravely like a woman- face on.
