The Grass Is Always Greener

Well folks, I went golfing for my first time today.  If you consider riding in the golf cart holding Baby P golfing that is.  I couldn't even make it past the tee off without committing a huge golf faux pas.  And I mean huge.  Who knew it wasn't acceptable to talk to someone mid-swing?!  My deepest apologies to the Mister!!  Let's just say golf etiquette is not one of my strong points.  With the golf season upon us, I thought I'd do a little research into this whole golf etiquette business and share my findings.  I would hate for y'all to make the same mistakes I did!!

1.  Never talk or ask questions during someone's play, especially mid-swing.  Can break a golfer's concentration and you will be shushed. 
2.  Do not put Doritos into your mouth right before or during someone's play.  Doritos make a deliciously cheesy crunch and can pose as a distraction.
3.  Avoid making unnecessary movements during someone's play.  Including but not limited to crawling around with Baby P, walking around green with Baby P, and/or dancing with Baby P.  
4.  In addition, would not advise walking around taking pics of Baby P on the green.  Especially while wearing magenta skinny jeans.  Could be confused for a dancing flamingo and therefore pose as a distraction.
5.  And although acceptable to jump up and down and scream with excitement after bowling a strike,  the same does not apply if you get a hole-in-one during golf.

Needless to say, the Mister may think twice before inviting me to join him for golf at any point in the near or distant future.

  1. Haha, that's funny. I'm not so sure that not being invited back to watch golfing is much of a punishment though. =) I'm glad you're blogging now Betsy!
