Martin Mull (American Actor. b.1943, Chicago, Illinois, USA)
TIME: 10:12 AM
PLACE: Bowling Alley
I signed the kids up at www.kidsbowlfree.com. We live pretty close to the bowling alley so I figured this would be an inexpensive thing to do this summer. We only have to pay for shoe rental. (When did THAT go up to $3.00 a pair?) DramaQueen became frustrated because she kept making gutter balls, and groused that SD only did well because SHE had the bumpers when she bowled. I pointed out that SD was 6 and when DQ was 6, SHE used the bumpers as well. Also, it had been some time since she bowled and with this program, she should get better at it each time we went. DQ then sulked that she didn’t want to bowl anymore because “it’s too hard.” Too bad, girlie, I told her, we’re going bowling this summer *and* she and MonkeyBoy are going to learn how to manually keep score. It’s good math practice and knowing how to figure a bowling score is something everyone should know how to do. I got the old eye rolls from DQ when I announced this. I’m such a mean mom who likes to torture her children. I live for it.
