You Only Live Once, This Is How I'm Doing It!

Bowling is like golf right?

Lowest score wins? Please say yes. Because if so I’m a bowling champion.

Yeeeah… I know you’re supposed to knock over balls pins. I even know the rules. Like if you get a strike the next frame is multiplied by how ever many pins you knock down… or something. And I *know* how to knock over a split. Darned if I actually can though.

I very consistently threw the ball into the same place. Right in the gutter. Me and the gutter? Like this ::crosses fingers::

I tried to have fun though. My competitive streak tried to rear it’s ugly head. I can get really pissy when I’m losing. I try so hard to be a gracious loser but it’s so freakin’ hard. I kept a smile on my face though. See?

My high score of the night was 63. No, I didn’t forget a 1 at the beginning of that number. Just 63. High five! ::crickets:: No? Whatever. If I break 50 that’s an accomplishment. I am so bad at bowling that whenever I try I always have random strangers come up and try to help me. They offer me tips and advice. It’s both embarrassing and hilarious.

Zahara on the other hand was pretty awesome. Comparatively.

Here she is after one of many strikes. Psh.

The reason we were at the bowling alley was because Zahara’s dad’s band was playing at the bar that was connected to it. They were actually really good.

There was an old man that was the most hilarious adorable person you’ve ever seen.

Look at what a great time he was having?

Later he came up to us and told us a bunch of jokes. Randomly. No one in our group has any idea who he is. I hope I’m that awesome when I’m in my 80’s.

So it was a good night. I had a lot of fun and while my bowling game did not improve I don’t care all that much. I can still kick butt on the Wii and for now, that’s good enough for me.


What we do for fun


Mmmm falafel


  1. You look like you had a great time. I love when crazy, random stuff happens (like the old guy!)

    Bowling is so fun, but I too get cranky when I’m losing. 🙂

  2. Yeah the little old man was hilarious. Not so much that his jokes were so funny but that he was dancing to a rock band in a dive bar and telling jokes to random strangers. Loved it.

    If you would like to not get cranky about losing at bowling, play with me. I will make anyone feel like a pro. 😉

  3. Looks like fun! But for reals, you should play with me. We sometimes compete for the lowest score! (I often “win” ) hehe. 🙂

  4. Seriously, where the heck do you bowl, because after seeing these pictures, I’m all about a game (?) of bowling. That can’t be what it’s called… A frame?

    Looks like so much fun. 🙂

  5. I don’t bowl regularly (except on my Wii). The place I went was connected to some dive bar in Sneeze-and-you-miss-it IL, I honestly don’t remember the name. And yes, I think it’s a game of bowling. Or maybe a round. The game (round?) is divided into frames. I should go more. Maybe if I did I wouldn’t be BFFs with the gutter.
