I went bowling today.
At the office we have a Christmas tradition. The department goes bowling in December.
But then we stopped having the annual Christmas bowling outing. Two years ago we went for a laser tag outing with the Sales department. And last year we didn’t do any team-building activities at Christmas.
Today, then, was the first time I’d been bowling since December 2009.
And I wasn’t terrible. I wasn’t great, but I wasn’t terrible. I broke 100 in both games.
I realized my problem. I throw hard and fast. Power, not finesse. No spin. I do strike pins with authority, but that limits the cascade effect.
It was a good outing. We got back to the office to some surprising news, but that’s a tale for another time.
