Kicking butt

This past weekend my husband and I bowled while my son and his buddy were next door at Boomer’s in Irvine.

My husband is extremely competitive and sometimes his ribbing gets under my skin. At times I try to talk trash back but I’m so amateurish at it, I end up sounding pretty lame.

It seems to me the male gender really likes to trash talk when engaging in activities together.

I have never really gotten used to this. Can you imagine if I were playing tennis with a friend and kept telling her, “I’m gonna kick your butt” or “You’re going down”

Anyhoo, prior to bowling, my husband and I took a hike in Newport and I asked him if we could not talk about bowling and just bowl. He agreed.

I only bowled one game because I’m recovering from tennis elbow but in that one game I beat my husband for the first time ever.

I’m not sure if he was just letting me win but I decided I wasn’t going to ask and I basked in the glory of kicking his butt!!!
