SPARES AND STRIKES

Happiness is...

...realizing there's hope after all.

After all the countless gutter balls I threw and taunting I received from the pins I've failed to knock down (as flashed on the digital screens in bowling lanes) in the past, I've proven that I am not a basket case when it comes to bowling.

I long accepted the plain obvious that bowling is a sport I could never be good at.  Competitive as I may be when it comes to games and sports, I long gave up on myself in terms of bowling.  No matter how hard I tried and no matter how bad I threw my tantrum and frustration fits, there was just no way I could roll a bowling ball to knock down those pins.  Pathetic as it may sound but I was averaging on two to three pins per roll. I would get the rarest of the rare very lucky strike once in a blue moon, but everything else was a hilarious joke.   I swear even my own family laughed at me and teased me.  That's how bad I was in bowling. I sucked big time!


But lo and behold, about a couple weeks back when Vince, I and a friend played three hours of unlimited glow bowl on a Friday night, I was amazingly surprised with my game! I never imagined ever being able to do double strikes several times and scoring in the low to mid-100s considering my hideous bowling history, but I unbelievably did all those! I even beat Vince in one game. Ha!

I know I sound like I won an Academy award or an Olympic medal, but all the people who had played bowling with me in the past would understand why I'm totally floored with my recent achievement. I swear, with the way I bowled last time, it was like the lame was made to walk again and the blind was caused to see. You get what I mean? LOL.  In fact, when my father heard about it, his exact words were, "It's a miracle!"

A world class Pinay (in my own terms and right).
Hehe!




So anyway, Vince and I went on another glow bowl date last Friday (and on V-day), and I had again a fabulous time knocking down pins.  It just makes me so happy that after all those hopeless hit-and-miss bowling moments I had in the past, I finally got the game.  In fact, I found myself a new hobby that's something I never ever really considered before ☻

  9. Buti pa kayo ni Doc Vince ate KM. Abdel doesn't want to play bowling with me 'cause he feels insecure kasi di talaga siya marunong niyan. Or maybe because I'm just better than him when it comes to it. LOL

    Anyway, congrats ate KM! :)

  23. Tat is a very good sport for exercise. I would never be able to do this. The balls are too heavy for me. I do play on the WI with my great grandson and beat him nearly every time.
