Last night I went out with my room mate and some of his friends. We went bowling and hit up Denny’s afterwords. It was definitely nice to get out of the house for a change, but I am a little disappointed with my bowling scores. I am the type of person that likes to win at whatever I do, even if it’s just a bunch of friends and I having fun at the bowling ally. I am not a sore loser mind you, I just enjoy challenging myself.
Beating my friends at bowling proved to be quite the challenge, because my room mate Steve can put up some pretty high scores from time to time, his high game last night being a 208, while mine was only a 116. I was a little disappointed with my performance, because I used to bowl consistently better than that when I bowled regularly. I think this could prove an interesting new challenge for myself, so I am going to take some time to work on my game, at least throughout the winter.
Ounce spring arives, I may switch to an outdoor activity, like golf or fishing, but for now, this should occupy some of my time. I need to visit the pro shop though, as my equiptment is woefully in need of an upgrade. My ball needs to have the finger holes re-drilled, as I have put on a decent amount of wait since I purchased it, and it is now to small for my fat fingers. I also need a new ball bag, a better fitting wrist guard, and a pair of my own bowling shoes, so I don’t have to keep renting shoes from the lane.
