The 2007 FHO

Fortunately, the FHO had slackened the entry requirements.
Unfortunately, I lost my golf game in the divorce.

Fortunately, I had 14 great holes of golf.
Unfortunately, the tournament was 54 holes.

This was some of the worst golf I have played in the last few years.
I was just barely able to duff my way around the course.
I had to drop out of Thursday's second round after 16 holes.
So I was sitting there, in pain, hurt to sit, hurt to stand
and I was thinking to myself, hey, I'm having a good time (and I was).

I will be working on my game (and my hip) this winter.
I am kind of ticked at my ex for this year.
Normally my golf game would be doing wonderful by now.
Normally I would have had the mental bandwidth for this.
I'm not sure that I would have done it if things were still "normal".
Wow, it is odd that it probably would have stopped me before
from even considering doing something like this.
Now that she is out of my life, I could not wait to do it,
and yet, because I have not golfed much this year, I sucked.
Welcome to the double edged sword of life.
Next time I am hoping that I will both do it, and play well.
Yeah, that would be nice.

Heck, I just hope I can walk tomorrow for the Pats game!
