I'd Like to Get To Know You
Tuesday October 22, 2013 5:15 p.m.
I generally write my blog as if I am recording a diary which someday might be read by a great-great or even greater grandchild. I figure that perhaps future generations of mine will want to know what life, in particular my life, was like way, way back in the 20 teens.
My page views stats support the fact that I do, in fact have readers other than my family. I know this to be true because to the best of my knowledge I have no relatives living in Beijing, France or North Dakota.
In an effort to find out more about the readers of my blog, I am going to try an experiment by occasionally posing a question to you.
Today I would like to know why you got out of bed this morning.
I'll go first.
Since today is Tuesday, it's bowling day for me. I have to be at the allies at 9:15.
So today, my reason for getting out of bed was bowling.
I'm not sure, how much of a "get me out of bed" motivator bowling is for me. It's not the game, really, because I am not that much into bowling. I throw the ball without giving much thought to form. There is no method to my madness. I don't spot the pins or look at the arrows. I just throw the ball in the general direction of the pins. If I can get near the pins and knock down a few, that's a good throw for me.
I would say it's more that I am a terribly responsible person. Or to put it another way, I am a rule follower, not a rule breaker.
So I committed to being a member of a bowling team in a Ladies League which bowls every Tuesday morning at 9:15 from September to May. I mean I didn't sign a contract or anything like that, but I'm expected, to be there, you know and so I am, there that is, at 9:15, every Tuesday, from September to May.
BTW, I bowled a 175 my second game. Not bad for a willy nilly thrower, huh?
What? The first and third game?
Oh, well as the captain of my team said to me after each of those two games "que sera sera". We're pretty laid back on our team.
The Ladies of the Tuesday Morning bowling league, well most of us are a little, okay a lot, past middle age, and sometimes we need a reason to get out of bed.
So, why did you get out of bed this morning?
