A Golf Outing

Today Dave came home from work a little early and wondered if I might want to go golfing with him. It was a beautiful, sunny day... a perfect day for golf, I thought. Well, needless to say, I did not do so well. It was a very frustrating golf outing for me. It was HOT, and there I was on the middle of a golf course in the bright sun, whiffing the ball. Does anyone but me have a hard time keeping their arm straight, keeping their eyes on the ball, opening the face of their club, pretending your club is a "noodle", and making sure you follow through on your swing? My poor honey, I wasn't a very good partner today.
Martha, you and I were just discussing this type of thing today. I got so angry at one point when I whiffed the same ball about 5 times, that I said I just wanted to throw the dan thing. I didn't swear I said, "dan". Dave said that it counts as a swear word...but I didn't swear! Do you think God took away some points for that one? ;)

Sometimes he brings us to the brink and helps us realize that we are not beyonf falling over ourselves. I have been there many times. I kinda like the word "stupid". I t keeps me from swearing and usually fills the bill. Do you think I lose points too.

I've golfed once my hubby and didn't really care for it. No advice here.

"Spit"and "Puke", work for me. LOL, sounds like an eight year old boy's fasination with body excreations. I love golf, I use to play on a women's league. Just pretend that little ball is someone bad and smack their head off. Like God has given you the power to eliminate an evil in the world. Rapists, murderers, the lady that cut in front of you in line at the grocery store when you only have 5 mins to spare. :D

I like to say "poop". *blush* But lately I have found myself saying "Dan" too... I guess I'm slipping and may need a Hand to help me out of the dirt again. No points for me!

PS Adam got out early on Friday too. Guess what he did? Except that he did it without me.
