Some people [runners, triathletes, surfers, skateboarders, artists, writers] should not bowl.
Usually I roll pretty well, but today my score after the first four frames was: 4.
In fact, the only pin I could hit, was he one on the far left ... They call it Number 7, I believe, as in "7-10 Split." After plunking down $12 to play two games [shoes included], I had paid $3 per pin. Yes, the price per pin would get better, but who knew by how much.
But as always, once you consign yourself to failure and relax, things pick up. I considered playing with D'Kid and her friends on the bumper lanes ... that was it!!!That was the problem!!! I hadn't bowled on grown-up/non-bumper lanes in about a year!!! In my mind I was playing for that last bounce.
I forgot how to aim down the middle.
My final score for Game One was 56. I lost, of course. Subtracting the 4 from the "warmup frames," I bowled at an average of 8.67 pins per frame - there was even a spare in there.
Game Two doubled Game One with a final score of 121; 177 pins on the day came to just under 7¢ a pin.
