Coffee and Small Balls

If you are here for the giveaways...cool. Go to the "Giveaway" tab above and voila....there they are.


Coffee and Small Balls


“Nothing you do or say...Love on the Rocks”-sing it to me Neil. Soothing sap from the two billboard legends. Whitney Houston just finished asking me “didn't we almost have it all”. Easy Rock...keep away from the sharp objects.

Bound and determined to escape the comforts of my own home I headed to Maguire Street. A swanky little area for the above average. No makeup, no shower, I grabbed the pants I wore yesterday and a sweater, I obviously didn't read the instructions when washing because my naval shows if I make any upward body movements. No one wants to see my love handles....the other voice in me says, “Don't look”.

I started at Starbucks, but I was not happy to find that I would have to pay to use the Internet. Next, Le Bagel, they sat me right away. I have been here 2 other times. Each of those ended with me walking out with a tick from irritation. The service is awful. One waitress, who apparently sleeps amongst the bagels at night was here again. Without fail she wasted no time trying to faked a smile instead she spat her unfriendly words at me while using threatening non-verbal gestures. (A very hard talent to master.) I paused for a moment wishing so much I could help her with whatever it is that makes her so unhappy. With a smile and bad French I ordered. “Time after time” plays through the speakers...how apropos.

I had to sneak a photo of this guy....totally French, right. I pretended to be taking a photo of the street then at the last minute swung it in his direction. Crafty photog. Work... Note the cream on white fashion risk, but he is owning it, snap.

Making it a weekend of "new", I suggested that we go bowling. Maybe a bit of forced effort to have fun, but whatever. Some of us went and quickly found out that some of us suck at bowling. Serious question, have you ever seen small balls? Get your mind out of the gutter, no pun intended, but how funny. (Now I know where that expression came from...thank you bowler people that's a good one.) I had never seen small balls, my husband and his friend had never seen small balls....but that is all they had. Small balls.


*We all look like we have jaundice due to the monochromatic yellow hues.

It is for that reason alone, it was the fault of the small balls that I never made it into the triple digits. Well, not really. I have never been a good "sports" person. The final score also exhibits...we are all pretty bad. This will most likely remain a once in a great while outing.

I'm a kegler. Love it in fact. My average on the league is 140...pretty nifty. Have a great day.

I just started following your blog and I'm trying to figure out where you are. I have done candlepin bowling in Massachusets, but never seen this that you are playing.

Too funny...the title totally sucked me in. That's not bowling though...it's called "duck pins" the balls are supposed to be small..and you're supposed to suck lol. Unlike bowling 100 is a decent score. Looks like you guys had fun though...and I love the sneaky photography!

I always thought "being bad at bowling" was what made it so much fun. No pressure.

Thanks for stopping by Gracefull Girl! What a neat blog. The card swap sounds fun!

Debbie said...

I only bowl at children's birthday parties where I have an excuse to use those bumpers. I find them enormously helpful to my game!

c'est Moi! the tink-n-frog said...

Maybe you should have asked the waitress with the issues to go bowling with all of you then you could have set her up as one of the pins. Maybe since the balls were small it wouldn't have hurt as bad. No huh?
Great sly pix, and yes very French

Whitney said...

Sneaky photography - very nice! And really jaundice is very. . . uh. . . flattering in bowling allies. And I'm with you, definitely not a "sports" person!

Veggie Mom said...

Mya said...

What a fabulous blog!! :o)

Molly said...

I have never seen small balls in person...but I have heard of them, does that count? Okay I made it through that without laughing, for the most part. Anyway, I think that particular game also had strange pins...? Now I can't remember.

Haha - sneaky photography to be sure! I have done my fair share of that :D Err...I mean...yeah. ;)

Julia said...

No matter how you slice it bowling is an awkward sport and I am a notorious gutter baller myself... Big balls, small balls, it does not matter I can not bowl. I need the foam gutter keepers they use for the kids...

And I put up your mini feature today on TAG! So you are "The Apron Goddess" for today. Hope you enjoy it! :)

Jill said...

I have never seen small balls like that, and am having a really hard time keeping my mind out of the gutter.

Apparently you and I share a talent for bowling. Not.
