Let’s Go Bowling

Retro fun by wackystuff from FlickrBowling isn’t the most physically grueling sport around, but it beats watching television for burning calories. Next time you’re trying to think of what to do with your evening, head to the nearest bowling alley for a night of light activity rather than zoning out in a movie theater for a couple of hours. I wouldn’t count an evening bowling as my exercise for the day, but it’s a great way to get up out of your chair and do something a little active.

If you know nothing about bowling, you can find out more here:

Woman bowling, circa 1950When I was a kid, they used to show commercials. People would be sitting, looking bored. One of them would say, “What should we do?” Suddenly, a bowling ball would appear in their hands and a voice-over would sing, “Let’s go bowling!” They showed these commercials so often when we were kids that whenever anyone says the words, “What should we do,” I immediately want to sing, “Let’s go bowling!” No one ever gets the joke and I can’t find the commercial on YouTube, so it must have been a local thing.

Next time you’re feeling bored, imagine that huge bowling ball appearing magically in your hand and choose something ACTIVE for your activity.

    My husband and I were in a league last summer and I miss bowling a few times a week! We went last Saturday for the first time in months and I think we are both feeling the bowling itch again… 🙂
