  • Ball phrases

    Hi all,

    My friend has started telling me to go "ball deep" or "ball to the wall". Of course, interrupted sex can lead to "blue ball". I also appreciate the expression "Aw, nut!" Y'all got any other good ball (singular) phrases?

    11/16/16 Went to primary care complaining of testicular pain. Wrongly diagnosed with epididymitis. Told not to worry, it'll go away on its own.
    12/8/16 Diagnosed with TC in left testicle.
    12/9/16 Left I/O.
    1/5/17 Tumor Markers officially back to normal -- Stage 1A with 70% EC.
    1/26/17 Robotic RPLND using left MSKCC template as primary treatment.
    2/2/17 Pathology results: pN0. They say I still have a 10% relapse chance.
    5/9/18 One and a half year all clear.

    I'd give my right ball to be cancer-free.

    I'm "listing to port". (nautical phrase, meaning I lean to the left now)

    I walk in circles.

    I'm a conservative who leans to the left.

    They only removed one, so I only sing a half-octave higher now.

    These are just a few that my buddies and I have used, and it's only been 3 weeks since my diagnosis. Good friends know that laughter is good medicine.

      I haven’t had much of an appetite since the surgery. Lost 12 lbs in less than two weeks. Told my buddy and he said “damn that was one big ball!”

            This will probably only make any sense to Brits of a certain age on here but one of my mates calls me Womble. And my younger brother calls me Mark One though that only works as I am the eldest and have the right name.

                After #2 I joked that my wife could now call me "no nuts", a reference to a TV series at the time that used that term to refer to a female on the team. However, for the most part I don't find this at all amusing. Can't understand why you do?

                Dec, 2009: Left I/O, followed by 3xBEP

                  I really can't get involved in this conversation, as I have more important things to do than just sitting around here scratching my ball!
