Golfing is my love, my challenge, my fun, and my frustration. But then, you all know that by now. The rotator cuff has healed as much as it can without surgery, so I am playing again, but taking only half swings. Can you imagine how long a game could take if I played 18 holes? Good thing I only play 9 holes on par 3 courses!
Last week I played with my regular golfing buddy and Dan joined us so he could get some practice in. Great! His sense of humor was on display when I asked for everyone’s scores on hole number 3. His response, “Two pars and a Katie.” Translation, he and Patrice had pars, and I had… a 5. Funny man.
However, this week the tables turned. When the scores were called for, I couldn’t resit, “Two pars and a Dan.” Yes, Patrice and I had pars and Dan had a 5. I just love how things can change at any time in this game called golf.
This is the beginning of a series intended to share some of the funny and thought provoking sayings. Living down the street from the grand kids, we get to see them frequently and have the rare opportunity of watching them grow up. That means we hear some of the funniest things. So, here is the first in this installment…
Setting: Daddy is dropping off little D for the day and then heading out to drop big sister off at preschool. Grandpa came out to the car to say good morning. With great enthusiasm, C proclaimed,
“Grandpa, I was on point this morning!”
I texted our son later in the day and asked, “So, what does that mean?” His response:
- get herself dressed (pre- chosen clothes)
- brush her hair (I’ve seen this…I redo it!)
- brush her teeth (pretty good job)
- finish eating breakfast
If you get this done by 7 am, you get to watch 15 min of Mickey Mouse Club Playhouse!
So, were you on point today?!
