05/07/13: (Updated)I've signed up again for the Bowl-a-Thon at work on May 15, to benefit Junior Achievement. When they asked me to participate, I promised to stink up the lanes the same as I did last year, but they said they didn't care, so I'm in. Through the fundraising site they use, I've set up a page for secure, online donations. The format was set by the site, but there was a spot called "My Story" which, of course, I took some liberties with, as I did by using the picture of the guys lawn bowling that you see here. This is what I wrote:

I really had hit rock bottom.

Things had been bad, sure, but now, the wife and kids were gone. My health was failing, I couldn't keep a job. I just didn't want to get out of bed in the morning. I felt as though I was drifting aimlessly through life. Lost. Without purpose.

Then I discovered bowling.

Bowling gave me something to live for, something to strive for. The pursuit of the perfect game. The thrill of picking up that 7-10 split. The assortment of colorful footwear. Every chance I had, I was down at the lanes, working on my hook, my delivery, my straight ball. As my game improved, my outlook on life did, too. I held my head high. I got my swagger back.

And with all this exercise, I feel better physically. I find that my pants fit better. I have more energy. My right bicep is twice the size of my left, which makes my shirts fit funny, but with these awesome bowling shirts that I now wear exclusively, no one notices.

The game of bowling got me back in the game of life. And now it's time to give back, and I'm asking you to help.


It must have been effective because several people donated, including one of my co-workers who, after hearing me read it out loud said "I'd donate to that site!"
