Who's the Man...well, um....woMAN!!

Every year my husband's unit has a bowling party...always a blast w/ tons of trash talk...and I have NEVER been good at bowling, but I have perfected my gutter ball dance! I held a high score of about 65 for 5 years. Then when I was 17 I finally had a new high score: 124 (which I did granny bowling!!!).

Eric and I are very competitive, so much that I beat him at King's Corner (card game) about 10 times in a row and he exclaimed, "it is mathematically impossible for you to win this many times, I quit!" And he refused to play any card game with me for 4 years!! But I can't complain, if I lost that many times I would probably give up too ;o).

So, last night my first game I did left handed b/c of issues with my right shoulder, and got a respectable 51. Then, I figured, why not just see how well I can do right-handed. So I picked the smallest ball I could fit my fingers into (8lbs) and went for it....very carefully. And I kicked almost everyone's trash!

I beat Eric by quite a bit AND one of the biggest trash talkers in the unit, Matt. Do you see my turkey!!!!!

We won't talk about the last game, b/c I had already won one, and I was busy getting the lastest gossip in between my turns with one of my favorite Army wives Kelly.

I am truly paying for my excellence on the lanes late last night and this morning...but victory is soooo sweet.

Good for you!!! You remind me I miss bowling. We have balls and I think hubby just put them in the attic. Jeesh, what was I thinking telling him to do that. I'll have to get them down and go soon. Our little guy is 5 so I am looking forward to introducing him to it too.

You guys are some good bowlers! I love bowling. But I refuse to go with Adam anymore. He is very particular about the shoes, and he gets seriously angry and tantrumy if they don't work right and if he can't bowl well. I won't do it anymore.

I loved to play King's Corner! I haven't thought about that game in years.

I can't believe you guys didn't play cards for FOUR YEARS. That must have been a painful beating. Congrats on the bowling score. My philosophy is the worse you are at a sport, the more you need to up your trash talk. Suckas!!!

I love to bowl and I am really good....on the Wii. In real life not so much!!

Mary said...

It's so funny that someone mentioned the Wii....I think that is why my real life game has improved!!! I have gotten pretty good at keep the controller very straight, which I think is why my awesome control over a very light ball is so impressive. That, and the fact that I had to keep my shoulder flexed the entire time or I would have been more pain ;o)
