I had a really good birthday. We went bowling. I had not been bowling since senior year. That was the night that I performed so terribly the first few rounds, and then suddenly beat everyone in the last round. I remember, not once, not twice, but three times getting one of those things where you get all but the two pins all the way on the ends…and then getting those on the second try. Jenna, Kara, and Adrian were in shock; imagine how I felt! I don’t know how I did it; it just happened!
But apart from that one bout with bowling luck that night, I’ve never been good at it. That’s not to say that it isn’t fun, though. We had fun today.
Cort, Nicole, and I put some of our nicknames into the computer, and because we were annoyed with Drew for being late, when he was supposed to be there before us, we decided to enter his name as “Quirrell”. (You know—the one who has Voldemort growing out of the back of his head.)
Drew was quite as pleased as we expected him to be with this turn of events (once he finally showed up). But we refused to change it.
So then, Drew started doing really bad…I mean, like, as bad as me. I don’t know if this is typical for him or not, but because I was doing just as suckily, I felt I could make jokes about it. (Sort of like how I can make fun of Catholics because I am one.)
He was returning to his seat after getting…what, two pins total knocked over? And I said, “You ought to try bowling backwards; I’m sure Voldemort is quite good.”
The look on his face would seem less funny if I tried to describe it in words, so I’ll let your imaginations do the work for you.
And then we met at Bennigan’s on or about 7:13 p.m. (which is the time I was born) for dinner, which is where my subject line comes in. That was actually Katie’s line, and it was one of the funniest things said all day. We had to wait a really long time for our food, and I had to wait an outrageously long time for my straw (and I was so thirsty!). I asked for a straw at least twice (possibly three times) before I actually got one. I guess they were busy.
