The Devastation of Hurricane Irene

We are back from bowling.  Other than Anne’s epic performance, the event was a great diversion from the devastation of Hurricane Irene.  Also, I suffered the most painful injury of my lifetime.  After the thirtieth straight roll where my ball found the heart of the pocket and did not result in a strike, I fell to the ground in mock agony.  As I flopped around the floor to express my frustration with bowling, I either broke every one of my ribs or severely pulled a muscle.   I now feel like my abdomen has winds gusting upwards of 110 miles an hour and I am in class 4 pain.  

Thankfully, we are now back at the safe house and Anne’s parents spent the afternoon preparing typical hurricane snacks:

  • pigs in a blanket
  • meatball sliders
  • an apple pie
  • a vegetable quiche
  • cheese and crackers

If this searing pain in my side does not go away, at least I’ll be in a food coma for the rest of the night.

Also, I bowled four games:  127; 144; 152; 72 (post injury.)
