While Alejandro and I were in Columbus, Ohio, visiting my family, a group of us went out bowling. It was the first time that Alejandro had ever bowled. Considering that it was completely new to him, I don't think he did too badly. He managed to get a strike and two spares, and he ended up with a score of 93.
I had not been bowling for five years, and it has been twelve years since I bowled on a league. I was never a good bowler. When I first bowled in junior high school, and then took bowling as a phys. ed. class in college, I threw more gutter balls than anything else. After several years on a league, I got my average up to 135, and on occasion I would break 200. My high handicap was actually a benefit to my team.
This time was like starting all over again, but I did find my mark a few times and made three strikes. I won the game with a score of 97.
Even though all of our scores were lousy, it was fun, and Alejandro enjoyed the new experience.
