Bowling (No, this is not a joke).
So let's just back up to August 2012 for a minute. I get this facebook message from my coworkers asking who would be interested in joining a bowling league. I know what you are thinking - "no she did not join a bowling league." Well, yes she did. The Dream Crushers have been going strong (well mediocre, really) since August. Did you have any idea that a bowling league is 35 weeks long? Again, not joking. And the most unfunny thing about a bowling league you ask? The price. Holy Cow. Unbelievable. You really should have witnessed the Dream Crushers and Team 3 at the first bowling meeting...there was a contract, a lot of pressure, and a lot of frantic texting, and calculating. There was no way out. Trust me.
Fast forward to this week...week 26, I believe. You might think I'm an all-star bowler at this point. Wrong. Bowling is no joke. And people at the Manassas Bowl of America take bowling very seriously. We've had to be corrected on our bowling etiquette, our picture taking, and the fact that when you get three strikes in a row it's called a turkey, not a rooster. Above you can see my mistake. You might also be able to see those fabulous bowling shoes in the Smithsonian sometime in May after we are out of our league contract. I am proud to tell you that there are a lot more roosters and strikes recorded on there at this point.
There's a lot of things I could tell you about bowling, but I want to keep this short enough so people will read it. It's been fun, but I'm pretty sure this will be my first and last season as a bowling league star wannabe...I think my teammates would agree. Cross your finger for us tonight :)
