I have a friend in a bowling league who asked if I could sub for her. How could I pass that up? I only had to pay fifty cents to bowl three games with some great ladies! Anyways, I started out with a strike. Pretty exciting, so my next time up I got another one. Well the third is called a turkey, and I got that one too! I’ve never bowled more than three strikes in a row, so I was pretty shocked when I got a fourth one. By the next time, people were watching…so I didn’t think I could do it again, but guess what? I did! Five strikes in a row!! My nerves got to me, and the next time, I only got a spare, and then…I kind of went downhill after that. Still, at the end of the game, I ended up with a score of 198!!! I was pretty happy… it was my highest score ever! But of course, everyone kept saying “Too bad you missed 200 by 2 pins, that’s so sad.” “Too bad you couldn’t get a 200 game, oh well” and so on, and so on, and so on. I didn’t know if I should feel happy or sad…and I guess I was a little of both, because it really would have been amazing to reach that elusive score of 200. Oh well, maybe another day.  😉
