Ok, I admit.....I couldn't resist......Bowling I mean....
16 of the Scholastic Bowl came to bowl for our end of the year party. One of the young men(there are only 2 girls on the team. go figure) who has been my JV captian and is now one of the varsity captains, has taken up bowling and wants me to coach a bowling team for our school.
Now, believe it or not, I am NOT that competitive (although I do think people would disagree with that statement) but this appeals to me on a few levels.
1) I am a pretty good bowler
2) I think I could be a pretty good coach ( I am fond of saying ..."just cause I know how to pick up the spares, doesn't mean I can)
3) I don't care if they win or lose as long as they have fun...or so I say now..
but anyway, a lot of work to start a team of anything at a high school and I am not sure I am up to the challenge but more on that later......
Bowling today with 16 little dumplings.... the chant
Beat Mrs. O
Beat Mrs. O
brought out the worst/Best of me.
I rolled 5 games.....
Ok so the 132 sucked but no one came close to it...
Man, I loved beating all these boys who thought they could beat me.
Maybe I am more competitive than I thought....
but here is the bad part
I can hardly lift my arm.
Obviously I am not meant to bowl more than 3 at a time.
It doesn't pay to try to be a 16 year old again
I might have the experience to bowl well
but they have the youth.
They are probably out doing something fun now
and I am going to put the heating pad on my bicep.
