30DBC: Best Excuse
Are you good at any particular sport? Care to share a memory of your own with us? Or are you pretty not great at sports, and have a funny story about that?

I am not good at sports. I do try, it's just not in my skill set. This story hails from 1988. I was pregnant with my first baby. The family decided to get together for Labor Day weekend for whatever reason and the sport of choice was bowling. Everyone knew how to do that, or so we thought. I don't think any of us broke 140. I know I did not even break 100. My favorite exclamation was "I'm lopsided, I can't throw straight." Or "Every time I throw, I'm off balance." My sister, God rest her soul, had the wherewithal to buy trophies. Mine was a tea towel that said "Best excuse". Yea, me?
