As I mentioned the other day, I was at the mall for a bit, well, a while, I decided to see a movie: A Good Day to Die Hard, which was apparently yesterday, because that movie was lame. They really just wanted to put a lid on that saga I think. Anyways, that is besides the point, after the movie I had some time to kill before my bus came so I decided to check out the mall and everything that has changed over the last couple years. I knew they added a bowling alley in attempt to drive more of our city’s youth into that sad excuse for a mall but I had never checked it out as it was put in after I became “disabled”. I decided I would check it out and yeah, it is a pretty nice alley, oh, for those of you who do not know, I was an “avid” bowler before MS, the last score sheet in my bag reads 250, almost all strikes and what was not a strike was a spare. (300 is a perfect game, ALL strikes)
Though I am pretty sure those days are over for me I was still pretty tempted to bowl a game just to see how it felt but with my balance and all, it was just… a bad idea… especially before my trip to Ireland. So I watched someone else bowl for a bit and then I moved on. On my way out I walked through the empty arcade and wondered how much it would suck to be there during peek hours with my sound sensitivity… I was there early in the day so most of it all was shut off except the flashing lights. Man… 250… I would be lucky to brake an even 50 now haha, oh well, some things are best left in my memories.
As I waited at the bus stop for bus 35, I realized, the last time I stood there was in high-school! I love how I de-evolved from a car to public transportation. Wait, no, no, no, I have to remember, I actually went from a car, to public transportation, to not being able to get out of bed in physical rehab and then I went from that to a wheel chair, to a walker, to a cane, to walking, and now to public transportation, independence, all about how you look at it right? I am lucky to be where I am at now, so forget that emo-thinking! I have been walking and taking the bus all around town going to the store getting ready for my trip to Ireland! My life is on the up rise!
