The Fury of the Raptor

So, Jonathan had told me over the phone in one of our many conversations that he was really into bowling and pretty good at it. But, little did I know what a suprise I was in for.

We went bowling last night and as we went up to the counter to buy the games and rent shoes, Jonathan refused the shoe rental. That's when I noticed the nylon bag on his shoulder. Yes, it had his own personal bowling shoes as well his own bowling ball. Now his bowling ball isn't any normal, run-of-the-mill ball. But it is entitled "The Raptor" with a picture of a raptor on it above his engraved name on it. Cool. (wink, wink.)

Needless to say, after two games, I was tired of getting a thumbs up when I had actually knocked at least a single pin over and seeing Jonathan disappointed when he only got down 9 pins.

Final Score Game 1:
Sarah: 55
Jonathan: 176

Final Score Game 2:
Sarah: 43
Jonathan: 172

Ouch. But when you're coming against "The Raptor" can you expect any better?

LOL, that's so funny! I love bowling but I'm with you. Every once in a while I ca manage a strike but it usually goes down hill from there.
I used to be on a home school team and my high score was 121. Woohoo!!
I can't even touch that now! Ha!
Thanks for share'n your story!
