I went bowling with Stargazer on Wednesday night.
In case you haven’t gone bowling in a while, A LOT has changed.
To begin with, scoring the game is electronic, so you no longer need those stubby pencils and game cards to keep track of your score.
You can also automatically raise and lower the bumpers to improve your game, if need be.
And you can order food to be delivered RIGHT TO YOUR LANE without ever leaving your lane.
Pretty cool, huh?
I sipped a margarita and chowed down on chicken wings and sliders while Stargazer had pretzels and a lemonade.
Naturally, I bowled with the bumpers down because LET’S FACE IT, I basically suck at bowling and can’t break 100.
SOMEHOW, and I’m just gonna attribute it to my lucky charm (Stargazer), I MANAGED TO get three strikes and one or two spares.
Not the best anyone has ever bowled, but for someone who doesn’t break 100, it’s pretty good.
Furthermore, I rarely needed to use the bumpers.
Most of the time I was able to stand at the end of the lane and roll the bowling ball straight down the lane.
We had a grand time.
I actually won one game (Stargazer won two out of three games against me), which is totally printable (okay, maybe only bloggable) news.
We then went to Penninsula Creamery and enjoyed some old-fashioned treats made for us by certified soda jerks.
Chocolate shakes made from vanilla ice cream.
Watermelon sherbert which was so tasty that Stargazer swore he’d learn to make some in his ie cream maker at home.
He’s definitely got skills in the kitchen, I’ll give him that.
He’s got other skills too, but let’s not get into that.
Suffice to say a great time was had by all and I’m SO EXCITED that I’m gonna go cheesemongering with him this weekend.
Truly, a man after my own heart!
