Today I went bowling with some friends as part of a fund raiser, and while I did not score as high at my personal best (169, I think, or somewhere in that neighborhood), I did get five spares in a row, which, by my reckoning, is not too shabby. My final score for the first game was around 135 or so, and in the upper 90s for the second game, so nothing to write home (or even blog) about, but it was a good time, and sometimes that's all you need.
When I was a kid I used to drink a copious amount of pop, often augmented with candy, on a daily basis. Now I drink one, maybe two, cans of caffeine-free pop a day, and usually without any other sweets. But today, in a perfect storm of saccharine and high-fructose corn syrup, I managed to down a lot of pop, as well as probably too much taffy and sugar (thanks to a nice, and unexpected, gift from our relatives in Georgia, and a good post-Easter sale on candy at Cub Foods, respectively), and thus am trying to flush the ol' system with a good deal of water before heading to bed. I just hope it doesn't come back to bite me in the wee (har!) hours of the morning.
This week we had the windows open for a few days to let the breeze through, and lemme tell you, after months of Minnesota winter, it feels good.
