Life Lessons and Bowling

Someone randomly asked me today how I felt about bowling. My initial response was that I think bumper bowling is for pussies even if your 5. I think everyone should know what it’s like to end up in the gutter when you’re trying your absolute best (ok, maybe not when you are five). And then […]
