Game On!



My iTunes: Limelight by Rush

Let's face it....my favorite part of bowling? Hands down...the shoes.

The shoes above are not mine....they belong (ok, we rented them) to my middle child...Jack. He can appreciate a good pair of funky shoes(not to mention the laces)...just like his mom & dad. Our whole family loves funky shoes. I take pics of our shoes all the time. I am sure you will see more later on that subject.

Back to the post...

OK, so next time I bowl, I am going to go with a group of adults and we are going to do the late night cosmic bowling. Do you have that where you live? How fun would that be with some good friends? A pitcher of beer (or Diet Coke), cool shoes, a disco ball (see below) and of course everything glows in the dark (the balls, the lanes, the pins). I am psyched already...

I feel a date night coming on!

Oh jeeeeeze I just lost the comment I made (and I was on a role).

Let's see what did I say?

Oh yeah, I've done the cosmic bowling thing and it is a blast! You and your husband will feel like you are eighteen again.

Of course if you're like me you won't feel eighteen anymore the next morning after bowling all night. I'm sore in places I didn't even know could hurt!

Peg said...

Alice said...

I haven't been bowling in about 35 years! I'll go with you. And I'll also go to A Southern Season with you and treat you to lunch!

I enjoy bowling, even though I really stink at it...but it's all about the fun and laughter, right?!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit my blog...you're welcome anytime!

Cosmic bowling is fun I've done it once before. Something about the black lights and the weird way that colors change in it makes it more fun :-)

As several others have pointed out, bowling is an activity that you don't have to be good at to enjoy (unlike most games/sports). In fact, screwing up a game usually adds to the fun of it, as long as you're not with some super serious competitive types. Gutter balls can be great fun with the right crowd!

I've bowled in several leagues over the years, and while that is fun, there is something about the black lights and friends that makes it better!

JAM said...

I used to love to bowl. As a teen, several friends and I were a team and would usually do well in tournaments and whatnot.

Lots of years later, and four back surgeries later, no more bowling.

But the shoes are cool.

My younger brother has had so many degrading and bad jobs in his life, that when we talk about bad work situations, we always comfort one another by saying, "Well, at least I've never had a job as a bowling shoe disinfector."
