On Boxing Day bowling with the boys

…or the second day of Christmas for anyone who doesn’t know what boxing day is…

Once upon a time, about 20 years ago,  DB and a crowd of friends decided to go [10-pin] bowling on the 26th of December.

Since then it’s become a tradition.

This year was the first time I went with them.

Unlike them, I think I’ve been bowling 4 times in my entire life.

I didn’t do too badly though, all things considered. I even got a couple of strikes. A lot of balls rolled off to the sides, completely missing all the pins, but I wasn’t the only one throwing them, so it wasn’t all that embarrassing 🙂

We played 4 rounds, all the others improved over time. Despite getting weaker and weaker and even dropping a ball before I could throw it, I scored 60-70 each round (of 10×2 throws).

3 hours of good company and left over Christmas chocolate, cakes and biscuits is something I could agree to repeat – it was a good way to spend an evening.

Yesterday, my fingers hurt.
Today, my whole arm hurts.

This proves that I do have muscles.
Muscles that I rudely woke up in the middle of their hibernation.
