Golf

Post by ed » Sun Nov 19, 2017 4:10 pm

I love my daughter dearly. That said, she has one teeny weakness: her equanimity gets strained when she plays miniature golf. Every time. Without fail. People get blamed for cheating. She goes off in a huff. It starts about half way thru (with luck) it goes downhill from there. This clip is from "Toast of London" with that cool guy from "The IT Crowd", Matt Berry. While my daughter does not cuss like her doppleganger, I suspect that she thinks the cusses. I particularly like the way she catches her breathe and then continues the beating.

Enjoy a round of Miniature Golf with my daughter, Melanie! Keep your head down. :D

She's standing up to the patriarchy. You go girl!! He was trying to mansplain the rules to her.

Mark Twain described the game of golf as "a good walk spoiled".

To my daughter's credit, she found the clip hilarious.

Judging from the clip, I hope she soon plays with the Donald…
