In the spirit of trying all things new, I decided to take a friend up on an offer to go to the driving range (for the second time ever in my life) to hit a bucket of balls. This whole thing started when I was talking with coworkers about how "I-really-think-I-should-learn-how-to-golf" and how a former professor told us way back in the day that taking up golf lets you connect with people you normally wouldn't. So, I found myself at the range.......
My lesson went something like this:
"You know you have to put down your phone to golf, right?"
"It almost looks like you are swatting away bees from attacking you."
"Bend your knees more, stop swinging it like a bat and don't take your eyes off the ball."
"A true golfer can golf with the wind."
From the kids next to us, "Dude, that girl hit the last few balls farther than you." Damn right I did - ok, so maybe it was only about 10 I hit anywhere near the flags.
After laughing at myself for missing three balls in a row..."Ok, golfing lessons are something you probably will want to consider if you want to play 9 holes."
|it was windy, that's the only explanation for this|
Next up on my list - boxing. Yes, you read that right.
I want to take a few boxing lessons and not kickboxing either. I want the gloves, the ring, the mouth guard and the person to box with back and forth because it's something I want to add to my ever growing list of workouts to try. Accepting suggestions now.
Who is with me?
