I wonder how long it will take me to settle back into our normal routine of being John plus Micah minus School equals Happiness. When I look at the clock and notice John is right next to me, I panic for a second because he is two hours late for class! It has been so nice having him back! So nice, in fact, that we were able to take advantage of the local bowling alley's DollarMania games. Two people. Two games each of bowling. $4.00. Can't beat that for an hour of entertainment! As you can see from the packed parking lot, the wait for a lane was almost unbearable.
Yes, we have our own bowling shoes. It's the only thing we purchased with our wedding money. The remainder still sits in one of our bank accounts, awaiting the next time we realize we need something that will change our lives forever! It was fun to get matching bowling shoes. Yes, they glow under the lights of Cosmic Bowling. They are quite the envy of the alley. Just to assure you...even though we are proud and distinguished owners of bowling shoes, and even though John has his own ball because it was impossible to find a ball that fit his fingers comfortably, we are STILL normal people. I assure you! In fact, this was the whole third time these shoes have been used in a year and a half of marriage, so that might let you know how avidly we bowl. The shoes have already paid for themselves...who gets away with charging $5.00 for shoe rentals?! Why, I remember when shoe rentals were a nickel (or at least, I bet my grandpa remembers)! Thankfully, I don't have to worry about the obscene costs of borrowing stinky, germ-infested slippery shoes for a few hours. I have my own, thank you very much.
John had two great games. He kept saying he wanted someone around to make it believable! He bowled like a champ. It was fun, too. The two games went very quickly since it was just the two of us. And we were only interrupted by the bowling of others when one of the two families on either side of us slammed a ball against the bumper rails. I still think those things have my name written all over them for next time! We really enjoyed the games and the quiet. It was pretty pleasant and cheap entertainment for the likes of us.
We even made it home in time to watch the Suns play another awesome game to even the series against the Lakers. In case it was unknown, I am married to a big Suns fan. And he knows the game of basketball so well, he could be an announcer! He will comment on a play or foul or shot, and two seconds later the commentator will say the exact thing! He is a smarty pants. In everything, it seems. I like him.
