I am beginning to really have a love affair with golf. I have gone twice this summer with Daddy-O and we have such a good time. Even if I'm not that good.

One reason I'm falling in love with it? Hello? The dress code! Where else can you play a sport, burn some cals (walking, swinging the club..), get some sun, AND rock khaki's and a polo? And be super prep-tastic while doing it? Plus.. I'm pretty sure everyone plays better with a popped collar. Of course I didn't realize that until we finished up.

I do wish, however, that there were re-do's in golf. I think if I play with Mommy, that'd be okay. Daddy isn't quite as forgiving. Bummer.

Mommy has her own set of golf rules: (1) no penalty stroke needed if ball goes in the water or gets lost in the woods - losing your ball is already a penalty and the U.S. courts have ruled there is no such thing as double jeopardy! (2) you are not allowed to put any number bigger than 9 on any hole on the score card - cuz those little boxes on the score card are not made big enough for double digit numbers! (3) If you hit the ball and it doesn't go very far, of course you are allowed to re-do it. If we're supposed to learn from our mistakes, the best way to do that is to take the opportunity to do it right. Sometimes that make take more than one re-do but, hey, you're a teacher and you know learning can be tough!! So, those are my rules . . . any time you want to play a round with me, just let me know!!!
