Room Temperature-Ish

I was asked to join a bowling league. A wha??? Yep, apparently people my age (ahem) are in bowling leagues.

So of course I couldn't turn it down. Mostly because I love the cutie pie that asked me, and I was intrigued to see what it was all about. After all, Kathie looked for a preschool schedule for her baby that wouldn't interfere with her league schedule, so I figured it must be fun.

Turns out I'm not a great bowler.

I'm not even that good. I'm mediocre, and that's being generous. My first game I got a 98. Not bad. It just went down hill from there. By the end of the third game, I was tired, my left butt cheek was sore, and my ball kept listing to one side or the other, no matter what I tried to do to correct it. I think my other two games were in the 70's. Great for temps, bad for bowling.

On the plus side, I met some way awesome ladies. I mean, here I come, toting my 2 children and a bag full of crafting supplies to keep them busy, they've never met me, and they let me sit and chit chat with them like we're long lost friends. Good ladies.

Also on the plus side, there was an abundance of spiky hairdo's. Always a good laugh. Not that I don't love the spiky, because I can totally understand personal style, but to see so much of the same 'do in one place was hilarious.

The games were cheap, the shoes cheaper, and the kids were easily satisfied with a drink and some highly nutritious bowling alley grub.

I think I may enjoy this "sport" after all!

Oh, bowling. Did you know I was on the bowling team in High school? Yep. SO DORKY. But it sure beat taking PE, and I like to think that I made it "cool." ha. probably not.
A bowling league with friends sounds fun! Just don't go toting around a fancy ball case and matching shoes and you're good.
