No Bingo or Bowling for Me. Thanks Anway.

E.E. Cummings said, “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” Do you agree or disagree?

Yes, I think it takes courage to be who you are instead of who people want you to be.

Before I was 30, I was a married-bowling league-bingo playing chick. What was wrong with any of that?

First of all, I was married. Marriage is fine but I never thought it was for me. After being married, I know that it is not for me.


A bowling league. My sister-in-law was on the bowling league. It was fun for her. She had all sorts of bowling gadgets. In my opinion, bowling night interfered with a whole season of “Lost.” I’ll never get that season back. Oh wait. It’s on Netflix. It was fun sometimes but I don’t really miss bowling night.

Bingo. When I’m in my 70s, I’m going to run the bingo hall. I’m going to be the head bingo lady in charge. Older people take bingo very seriously. I will again someday.

So there was a period of time in which I had to decide that I didn’t want to be married or bowl or play bingo anymore. It wasn’t easy but I did it. Okay, some of it was easy. It turns out that I was not addicted to bingo or bowling or marriage.

Then I had to think of what I really wanted to do with my life, which is really scary. I’m still figuring it out; however, I’m much closer to my goals than when I was hanging out at the bingo hall.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.

  1. It does take guts to let go of things that don’t make me better. It takes courage to be who I am really called to be, my best self.

  2. Ditto what Angie Mc said. Sometimes we follow what we think is the “should do” and then figure out it’s not OUR “should do”.
