The Daily Ping

There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

So, I’ve been told over the years by more than one person (three or so) that I should take up golfing – because I’d enjoy it.

I’m not sure. It looks kind of neat, but watching golf on TV is pretty boring to my eyes. Then again, a lot of sports aren’t as interesting to watch as they are to play (hello, bowling!)

But here’s what I think I would like about golf: it’s in a pretty setting most of the time. Golf courses aren’t too bad to look at, and I enjoy nature walks. I’m pretty terrible at hitting a golf ball – I’ve tried – so if someone would combine bowling and golf, I’d be all right.

I’ve always thought of golf as one of those games that doesn’t appeal to a wide cross-section of people – just golf fans and golfers. Much like, uhm, bowling. So maybe there’s more to my potential liking of golf than I’m willing to let on….

The only time my BF wears nice slacks and a dress shirt, is when he’s golfing at a country club.
And I find myself praying for terrible weather on the weekends, just so I know that I “might” have a shot at him “wanting” to spend the day doing something with me(the one who washes his clothes, runs errands for him, helps him at his job w/o pay, cooks & cleans for him, etc, etc), as opposed to the endless phone calls that he wound make in a very short period of time, desperately seeking companionship for 4 or 5 hours with a guy who he doesn’t even know the last name of, and ironically is never the one he would ever call on if he were to run out of gas on the side of the freeway, and needed someone to run to his rescue(yes…me again).
Oh yeah…he loves me more than words can ever say.(But only on days that it rains)

That is really, really sad. I blame golf.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
