January 22, 2012 by Paris Hash House Harriers
Where : Foret de Meudon
Hare : French Kiss
Theme: “Hash is your sin”
And as we discovered later many hash sins were truly committed . Not to mention the GM Half Crazy sinful attitude preferring a love affair to hash attendance .
We were waiting in despair around 2 pm at Chaville , facing the drizzle and gusty winds when PPO arrived and suddenly the rain stopped !
French Kiss took a false excuse to get The Anarchist and Speedy for a drive to a lake nearby so that we could taste his Spanish liquor in a tin. Our first sin, we confess.
We managed to gather for the instructions of the Hare and started frantically for a jolly run while the walkers led by Anaconda were lost after a few minutes walk, looking for the trail around the RER station on a map and ignoring the flour signs every 5 meters…….
Fortunately after a few calls with the Hare and helped by the flair of Just Voyou and the enthusiasm of Just Alexandre, the walkers reached the Foret de Meudon.
Just Stupid, PPO and Princess Pussy were leading the pack , hoping probably that it was a race when a first Check Back 18 reminded thoes foolish FRB’s that French Kiss was THE Specialist of CB double digits.
So the pack regrouped again and began to explore the hilly , shiggy part of the Forest and it turned into a hiking party of breathing fellows .
For some reasons to be explained Speedy was leading the pack with his horn, in the good direction uphill while we where desesperately trying to find this bloody trail.
And things got worse when after a check point we found the right trail with a X FT mark followed by flour signs then by a so called false check point that led to a false false trail followed by a false On On……..
The pack was confused and thought the Hare did the run twice, onwards and backwards without noticing , mightbe a side effect of the Spanish liquor …….
This dirty trick lasted for a couple of miles but we decided not to be fooled again by this act of sabotage and followed our Hash instinct.
At each official checkpoints we were wondering who could that be ( a jealous Hasher from a concurrent Hash ….) when we caught Screwing Nemo in action of putting a square flour on the trip .
Just Melina, Hyper, Running Commentary and Slack Mac found their last resources to the Beer stop near a romantic lake and we were joined by the Cycling Kids Squad preceding the walkers’ group and shared a well deserved beer.
On On again in the forest . Just Ivan was fighting with his sweater and his anorak blowing in the wind , I suspect as he is a very cautious virgin hasher he had also a sleeping bag and a tent in his pockets, one never knows…….
French Kiss tried to lose the Harriettes at a lady’s check in the nearby “cité” , hopefully Princess Pussy had the blond attitude to find the right trail in the opposite direction. Well done.
The last part of the run was going down to rescue our painful knees and thighs and Ooh la La even prayed for next hashes to be downhill only . Probably a side effect from missing the Hash 2 months.
And so we regrouped at the lake for the On On celebration by PPO.
The list of sins was quite impressive but French Kiss poured his liquor again in the tin and I do not remember all of them but at least :
- Just Melina and Just Ivan for being a virgin
- Seven and our co beermaster, Ooh La La, Slack Mac as returnees
- French Kiss for his nevrotic attempt to fool the pack, joined by Screwing Nemo the hidden co hare
- PPO, French Kiss, Princess Pussy and Just Stupid for having group sex, evidence was shown by Ooh La La le voyeur and at the disposal of Anaconda or Just Cathy if needed ……
- PPO, Just Stupid and The Anarchist for being FRB’s again
- PPO for shiggiest shaved legs
- Speedy Gonzalez for still being on summertime hour so arriving one hour in advance and summoned to lend his flashy yellow watch to our GM Half Crazy
And after the hash hymn, we shared a wonderful Chile con carne prepared by French Kiss and accommodated with rice and Mrs Besson famous spicy West Indies sauce . Another excuse to have another beer to quench the mouth fire.
