On the Annual Bowling Outing

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.
