On the Sixth Day of Christmas My True Love Gave To Me…

… Six Super Strikes, FIVE MOMENTS OF PEACE!!!!! Four Yummy Chocolate Crinkles, Three Rock-hard Sugar Cookies, Two Chocolate Melting Moments and some fabulously delicious Checkerboard Coook-kiiiees!

It was bowling night with Elizabeth and Tommy down at the Parkway Bowl. Adelle couldn’t make it due to a nasty cold that I did not envy (I could feel the achy, sore throat, throbbing nostril-ness when we spoke on the phone) but we still managed to have a rip-roaring time. It all started out at On the Boarder where we got to have a good time discussing The Gates’ Family cat, Lilypop, being in heat while enjoying 18 ounce goblets of BudLight and one of the best mango margaritas I’ve ever tasted. Then we hopped across Fletcher Parkway to get our bowl on. We opted out of “Cosmic Bowling” (which actually looked really cool, but I think being in an indie folk-emo-rock-pop band was required, or at least wearing the standard plaid shirt and forgoing hair cuts for at least 6 months) Instead we did regular bowl for an hour and were lucky enough to have a lane right next to the bar and the bathroom!! The Gates had “prepped” us through out dinner about how “bad they were at bowling and even tried at first to psych us out. Tommy points out that we are in the 4th frame and that there were 10 pins in each frame, and Elizabeth only managed to hit 9 of them. We laughed, thinking Team Cox had this one in the bag…. until the Lizinator rolled like 4 strikes, 2 spares, and won the game 25 points ahead of the next person.

The next game, however, the Lizinator wasn’t so lucky because I found Orange Ball Medium Eight and rolled two strikes in a row. I guess I must have bragged too much because I then rolled a 3, a 6, and then a 4 or something horrible. I never got to six strikes by myself, but called upon the skills of my fellow players to bowl for the blog. Matt threw the sixth strike and then we had a round of “speed bowling” to play out the remaining 4 minutes of time we had left. Tommy started bowling in the lane next to us and threw a two ball grand finale.

 

Pins everywhere felt the pain as Tommy goes in for the kill.

It was a great night with good friends, good bowling, and Christmas Karaoke?!? Yes, ladies and gentlemen, nothing finishes a night of six strikes than Have a Happy Christmas, Row Row Row Your Boat (made popular by “Children”), Kansas, and the Spice Girls.

Vodka and Toast.

Day Twelve of Twenty.

It’s Sunday so of course we go out drinking. We head up to Bar Kohl for a sampling of their 54 flavors of vodka. Yum. We did the math and we had 7 shots, 2 1/2 beers, and a Smirnoff Ice… each. Jesus Christ on the cross. I guess that is how you end up running through the streets of Edinburgh with the sun coming up, peeing in the streets, playing doorbell ditch, taking photos of Greyfriars Bobby, eating toast, and sending improper emails.

Day Twelve of Twenty. It’s official. My bangs are out of control. And so is my drinking.
