Beer, I mean "Bowling," Report

Here I am, bowling. Don't I have good form?

So, despite my expressed desire to "not drink too much," I consumed many glasses of beer (this is why pitchers of beer are so dangerous -- your glass just keeps getting magically refilled and there's no way to truly keep track of how many you've had), yet this was the key element of my game because my best game was my 3rd one (score: 139, not real great, but great for last night -- I had a dismal performance).

Overall, bowling was loads of fun and it was great to be back in league and see some leaguers that we hadn't seen in a whole year, as well as enjoy good times with the friends we see frequently (our circle of friends makes up a fourth of the league teams -- we are a presence). At the end of the night, my husband and I restrained ourselves from stopping by the Taco Bell drive-thru (there's something about the combination of bowling and beer that works up a terrible hunger for a chalupa); instead, we found ourselves at home scarfing down leftover paella. That's got to be a little better for us.

Anyhoo, this evening I have a party to go to where I really do need to take it easy on the drinks because tomorrow I have a six miler. But for today? Nothing but rest, homies, nothing but rest.

We drank 3 pitchers between the three of us and Sally on the South Beach diet who doesn't need to diet, didn't drink a full pitcher. You can safely say you drank over a pitcher.

Ryan said I have a 10 mile bike ride scheduled for 7am tomorrow. I hope one of our stops is McDonalds!

I like the pic!! Haha! Sounds like you had fun! I have a party also tonight. Hope you have fun

Erin: Yes, "Sally on the South Beach Diet" certainly doesn't need to diet! Her "fat" arms (which are the size of my fore arms) don't need any shrinkage. She needs to suck it up and drink more beer!

Good luck with that 10 mile bike ride. If I had a bike, I would go along, but alas, I do not own such machinery.

CollegeGirl: Have fun at your party this evening!

Wow - 139 is good! My best score ever is 118 and I was sooo proud of that. I definitely had my share of drinkage last night too, despite my "no drinking on weekdays" rule. Whoops.

Nicole said...

yay for bowling.
good luck w/ the running tomorrow.

hungover runs can sometimes be really good runs. I think it is the intense desire to finish that always makes me run a little faster when partially drunk or hungover. I'll send some cool breezes your way tomorrow morning for the six miler.

I absolutely love bowling and all the pitchers that come along with it. :)
