this is not 'Nam. This is bowling. There are rules.
I took a half day today so I can take the kids bowling.
I suck at bowling. My lifetime average must hover around 40, and that's including all the times I played with bumpers. My wrist does this weird twisty thing that I can't control and I end up playing gutter ball for ten frames.
Still, I enjoy it because I like to pretend that the pins are my chosen enemies and when I - once in a great while - knock a few down, it feels good. It's not like pulling out a firearm during league play, but it's close.
They also have really good, greasy fries at the bowling alley.
So my goal today is to bowl higher than a 40 and to possibly get a better score than my two year old nephew.
Then I'll come home and watch The Big Lebowski.
