Bowling with the Country Folk
Sam and I took the kids bowling tonight at a bowling alley that one of our friends recommended. We honestly can't remember who recommended it which is a good thing because it was trashy! The place was called "Karen Pullman's Pro shop and Bowling Center."
To get to the bowling alley you walk through this full-service embroidery shop:
And then through this "pro shop":
I tried to get my camera out to take some pictures of the crowd and Sam scolded me. Suffice it to say, the woman in the lane next to us had "Throttle Girl" written across her lower back. I don't know what that means, but it can't be good.
Another guy a couple lanes down had every square inch of his skin covered in tattoos (except his face.) The back of his head was even tattooed.
Then the die-hard bowling teams showed up wearing stuff like this. Notice the hats:
The family next to us brought bags with bowling shoes and bowling balls inside. The dude behind Ryan is actually polishing his ball before his game:
This other guy behind Luke had a towel in his back pocket for wiping his ball or hands or something:
We got the heck out of there as quick as we could. The funny thing is--Sam is a remarkably good bowler. He rolled a 158 and he did most of that with Buster in his other arm.
I'm not ashamed to say that I rolled a 56 and that was using the bumpers--worse than my kids. Somehow, after seeing that crowd, I don't feel too bad.
