The Pharmacy Chick

Flying the coup in retail

My finest bowling moment.

Filed under: Uncategorized — pharmacychick at 7:20 pm on Sunday, April 4, 2010

Every sunday the Chick family goes bowling.  And yes, we went bowling today (and not at the expense of our faith ok?? It is Easter,  He is Risen, Thank you Jesus!  you are awesome!!)

 There is a bowling center nearby that rents 2 hours for $15 on sundays.  Its a great deal.  All the games you can bowl for 120 minutes for 15 smackers.  There is a core group of us who go rapid-fire for 2 hours each week. I had a great first game 187. I am on a roll!

 I started the second game, threw my first ball, and my left foot, instead of sliding, got caught on something sticky on the floor and I just about fell into the bowling lane…but tried to catch myself with my right foot..which unfortunately found the lane……the freshly oiled lane..

Holy cow! my feet were over my  head in an instant and I slammed to the ground about 2 feet into the lane, landing on my wrist and tailbone.  After determining that I was not injured my group decided that laughing at me was the proper ettiquette for the rest of the morning.

I think my new nickname is “grace”.

If you have ever played golf, you know that the hardest shot to make is the shot immediately AFTER a shank.  Well I can tell you now that the hardest bowling throw to make is the one just AFTER the one you butt-planted in the lane!

So I sit here with an achy tushy and a wrist that is complaining louder by the moment.  Whodda thought Bowling was so dangerous??

Happy Easter Everybody!

Ouch!

Glad you didn’t hurt anything more than your pride.

Another reason I stick with Wii bowling.
I played a lot of wii at christmas time. learned I was a champion professional ski jumper (who knew?) but on the balancing high wire, I died every time. And even tho I am a single digit hcp golfer in REAL life I couldn’t wii golf to save myself.

Thanks for the great visual! you didn’t mention – What was your score that 2nd game?

Happy Easter – thanks for sharing.
I could hardly throw it without flinching..I bowled 125..and the best I could muster after that was 150something

I went to a friend’s birthday party at a drunken 10-pin bowling alley a couple of years ago… Wasn’t wearing the proper shoes, just socks… When I went to throw the ball, it fell/was thrown out of my hand and rolled behind me towards the spectators… Scared the crap out of me because of my sock-feet… Good laugh was had by all…

When I took the shot again, I got a strike…

I felt vindicated… 😉

I have never bowled, so I can’t quite relate – but you have to come up with some good story for work to explain your soreness.

Like battling a brown bear, hitching a ride on the back of a garbage truck or arm wrestling the entire lacrosse team from Local High.

The less likely the story, the less questions you will get.
