Musings

  • I never knew that bowling could be a contact sport until today.
  • Before today, I’d never seen anyone take a running start at bowling, either.
  • Twenty-three third graders, times two pieces of pizza apiece, equals two pepperoni pizzas, two sausage pizzas, and a cheese pizza.  In addition, it equals four pitchers of water, three of cola, and two of lemon-lime soda.
    • Add in chocolate and vanilla cupcakes, and I’m pretty sure some of those kids were ready to shot put their bowling balls down the alley.
  • Speaking of which, whatever they use to protect the wood on bowling alleys is what I want used the next time we refinish our floors.  I’ve seen armor plate that didn’t stand up to the impacts they took without a mark.
  • The bowling alley threw in a used bowling pin as a momento of Boo’s party.  I have been informed that it is neither a pistol target or a small club.

    Twenty three third graders, soda, and cupcakes?
    Then the third graders used spherical kinetic energy weapons?
    You are a brave man! (smile)

    • Well, it’s the last little kid birthday party I have to do, at least for a long while, so why not go out with a bang?

    It may be one of the varients of PVC. They make skateboard wheels out of the stuff.
