Yea, this one is about me! I had a dork sided moment yesterday at the bowling alley. I’m going to blame it on the grieving mother in me! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it! :-D
I don’t bowl. Reason 1. I could break a nail. Reason 2. I get bored after the 3rd frame. Reason 3. I will NOT stick my fingers in any sweaty balls!…..EVER AGAIN!!! Ewwwwwwww! Reason 4. I refuse to wear someone else’s warm, sweaty shoes!! Ewwwwwww! NASTY! NASTY! NASTY! I just threw up a little in mouth with that one!
Sooooo I just go to heckle! I mean lovingly support Marts. LOL :-D Oh and drink either a pitcher of beer or several glasses of wine. It makes bowling a whole lot more fun for me! :-D
What I forgot to mention is that we had lane 22!!! What day did Andrew ascend on??? 22!! Like the neon bright shoes and bright pink bowling balls wasn’t enough of a sign!! LOL
I was sitting at the table NOT minding my own business and heckling the boys but also watching the family next to us. There was a little girl that looked like there’s wasn’t a ball that weighed less than her, bowling. She was so cute. I cheered the kids on in between making fun of the boys. It’s a wonder I’m even allowed to go! LOL
Well, the family is done bowling and the father reads Martin shirt, I mean Andrew’s shirt, the one he wore at the service. The Harry Potter Mischief Managed shirt. He didn’t seem to get it. SO Martin had to explain it was from Harry Potter. I went on to say that it belonged to my son. He looked at Martin and said “He’s not your son?” Now this is where I get all dork sided…I said “No my son passed on nearly 3 weeks ago, he was only 16. He had been diagnosed with leukemia.”
Well, what do you think that did to that poor guy??? He didn’t know what to say! He said I’m sorry to hear that and felt really bad. Did I let him off the hook?? Of course not! Grieving Mother here! Remember!!?? I went to say how amazing Andrew was and what a difference he made at the hospital. He went on to say that he didn’t know what to say. I told him it was ok he didn’t have to feel bad. I told him to just love his kids because this happened out of the blue to us and to just always love your kids because you never know what’s going to happen!
Could I be anymore of a dork???? I made this guy so uncomfortable! If he ever sees me on TV he’ll say “OMG! That’s that weird, crazy lady from the bowling alley!!” ROFLMAO! SO as you can see, grief makes you do weird things! Let this be a lesson to you!
But as Andrew sez IT’S ALL GOOD!
