So my kid’s friends came over tonight. Normally I give them the house and go to my room. But tonight I was waiting on some friends to come back from out of town and claim their dogs.
So I played Wii Bowling with these young ‘uns. They were all at least 18. I am 46.
It was embarrassing how badly they were beaten. By a man over twice there age who had already today: posted several blog posts, wrote a requirements specification document for a client, renegotiated terms of an incentive plan for a third party development team I am managing, replaced a toilet seat, got new shower curtains up, put in a new garbage disposal, added a halogen light kit to my lawn mower and – finally mowed the yard. Not to mention some blog tweaks.
The Wii is a fairly physical game – but I paced myself. I sat down between each strike, drank a swallow of beer for each spare (and two for a strike!) and generally relaxed.
My daughter warned me that my back will hurt tomorrow because I played the Wii.
The garbage disposal, toilet seat, et al just doesn’t matter, I guess 🙂
And I did all of this without a “honey-do” list 🙂
It was a good day – but my back WILL hurt tomorrow.
