Oh, hey. It’s almost 11am on Friday. I know I’m forgetting something. Huh.
Anyway, it’s been an age since I’ve been bowling, but the kids got free passes from the school at the end of last year, and the other day, we decided to bowl. Why? Because, like Everest, it’s there. Here’s a picture essay to tell the story:
This is Light, rolling the ball between her legs the way kids have for… well, since people started bowling. 1950? Or so?
… and this is also Light, urging the ball to move to the right, as we all do, every time, as if the ball will look back, see us waving our arms, and say, “Oh, you wanted me to go that way? On it!” For the record… it worked.
Sweetness, showing us the new bowling craze, laziness. “Just because it’s technically a sport doesn’t mean I have to be active!” That’s the spirit!
Okay, I’ll admit… I bowled way better than I ever have, and I have no idea why. Up to this point, my best-ever real-life bowling score was maybe 65. I think it’s because of Wii bowling. I’m really good at Wii bowling.
And yes, that’s the Bangles on the other screen, walking like Egyptians.
All in all, it was a great day, and we had fun. Alastair and I had sore wrists by the end of the second game, probably because we were doing it wrong, but who cares? We went BOWLING, and had an awesome time with the kids. Recommended!
