Bowl - a - Rama and preschool in one week...

Yesterday at work, we went bowling for the managers birthday. I hate the manager. All I cared about was that she didn't win. She didn't. YAY! Sadly though I was not the one to beat her. I suck at bowling. I have not done it since I was like 15. My first game I bowled a 56. WooHoo! I came in 4th place out of 7. The next game, I thought I was doing really well and I did do much better, I had an 88, but I came in last place. I had two gutterballs the 10th frame. DAMMIT! I actually really liked bowling, I want to go again.

The day before, we had a team building excercise. All of the assistant supervisors had to go to Harrisburg. We went to a park. We then had to do ridiculous crap as a team. They had a crime scene and each little group had to do a skit like in CSI. DUMB. Then we had to decorate baseball caps with little gems and come up with a team name. DUMB. Then using 14 straws, 2 rubberbands, and 24 inches of masking tape, we had to drop an egg from 7 feet on to the cement ground without it breaking. Our egg broke. Everyone's eggs broke. DUMB. I felt like I was in pre school. The whole time we were doing this crap, they had an 80's CD blaring in the background. I am a fan of the 80's, no doubt, but after 5 hours with tunes such as Mickey, Don't Worry be Happy, and Jessie's Girl, I was ready to rip my hair out.

I remember in 5th grade getting an F because I didn't do the Egg Drop experiement. My friend Sam had help from her dad who was a science teacher using straws and rubberband.... it came out like a model of a molecule.

you should keep up with the bowling, and just think, by your managers next birthday, maybe you will beat her! but at least she lost the other night. :)
