Yeah, it's spring break like I said. Magnum took the week off of work, so we're having a staycation because of the pets and garbage obligations. Today: To the bowling alley!
I've never been a particular formidable bowler, but I always have a good time, despite the ghastly shoes. Today, however, I had a real goal. Beat President Obama's 129 avg. (no further comments on style). I got a strike on my first throw - nothing like a little healthy competition!
The bowling alley was good and busy. The Senior leagues taking up the middle lanes, and us family types on the outer fringes. I soon noticed a woman a couple of lanes over. I noticed because she bowled like a man, and I mean that in a good way.
No, she was not butch in appearance - NOT THAT THERE'D BE ANYTHING WRONG WITH IT IF SHE WERE - but dang she could rip that ball! I'm talkin' velocity! She seemed like a nice mom-type, there with a couple of young kids and an older woman I'm guessing was her mother or MIL. And when she stepped up to bowl, there was hell to pay for those pins.
So I decided to try to emulate her on my quest to beat the President.
Did I succeed? Well, I bowled a 111 average. Okay, so I didn't beat Mr. Obama. Still, I was satisfied enough with my performance, considering I bowl maybe 3 times in a year and considering the guy in the lane next to us set his bottle of chew tobacco spit on our shared table, significantly throwing my game off for a moment. DUDE!
I bet I could beat Michelle, though. Sleeveless!
