On Friday afternoon my co-workers and I went bowling at the "historic" Presidio bowling alley.
Seriously, this was the smallest bowling alley I have ever seen. However, when you put it in the perspective that this was the bowling alley for an old military base, I guess it was perfect for its original purpose.
I haven't been bowling in years and was excited and nervous at the same time. Nervous because I haven't bowled since developing the beginning signs of carpal tunnel syndrome. I wasn't sure if the movement would aggravate my wrists. I was excited because I happen to be an amazing Wii bowler. I pretty much can bowl a strike or a spare every time on the Wii.
Well guess what? Skills on the Wii do not translate to skills on the lane in real life. In fact I was suddenly an expert at throwing consistent gutter balls. I really wanted to join the kids on the other side of the alley who had the bumpers up. No such luck.
Despite my poor performance, which I am totally blaming on the antibiotics I have been taking, a good time was had by all.
* For the record, that is not me bowling in the top photo. It's my director Larry.
