LBRs weigh in
Here's Siegfried's comment:
"Oh, no!!! Not GOLF!!! A BIG waste of time and water, as far as I am concerned!"
Right ON, Dave, I'm with YOU! Trouble is, I have been hypnotized by Houn Dawg (at right, above) and I cant' stop buying golf equipment. Yes, I know I need professional help and therapy and intervention and all the rest.
If you can send an Intervention Team, that would be much appreciated!
Here's Maggie's comment:
"I read about your newly acquired golf purchasing addiction and, frankly, I'm not quite sure what to say! My mouth is agape and my brain synapses are attempting to coagulate into something coherent and sensible. There will be more forthcoming on this tomorrow. The good news is you have only spent $40 thus far and the damage is minimal...thus far. Were you bitten by some type of insect recently? Drank any unusual water? Sunspots? PS - And don't go sleepwalking out to buy anything golf-related."
Here's Goatherder's comment:
The Goatherder is deeply disturbed. This is creepier than your momentary interest in bagpipes. Seek help NOW.
Here's Spudboater's comment:
Okay, Johnny, please add me to the contingent who wants to know what blew up your u-till-a kilt? You aren't Scottish, and golf is for sissies unless you are Scottish and playing at St. Andrews. The only thing golf is good for is riding around drinking gin and tonics in a golf cart while harassing the golfers. With those new $40 worth of clubs I do see a viable alternative--extreme croquet equipment! The clubs I inherited from my mom are missing a couple of irons or some such, since I don't even know what you call each one of those "sticks". I was going to give them away, but felt guilty. Then I realize their true usefulness is in extreme croquet. So get those new to you "sticks" out and use em for that. Yours truly, Marti Spudboater
Today, I bought leather NIKE golf shoes, a golf cart, a golf bag, a golf scope and even a Three Stooges Golf Poster. Is there no hope for me? Have I gone over the edge of no return? Gawd, I hope not. I pray that this is a minor episode in our Y2Ten Lives. Luckily, I am "in" for less than $40 total up to this point. That's no serious financial damage in anybody's book. Heck, two gourmet hamburgers, drinks and a tip will set you back at least that much money these days. Most people we know would be HAPPY to get out of a semi-upscale restaurant for $40. So what's forty bucks? Not a whole heck of a lot these days. Anyway, don't fret too much. Even though I paid $4 for a Greg Norman polished cotton golf shirt today, I haven't fully succumbed. Even though I bought an unused Nine Bridges Golf Hat, a golf bag, a cart and a putter cover, NO, I haven't fully succumbed!
Honest, I haven't!
