The ex-Ex and I went bowling after work last week with Receptionist and her fiance. We all got some beers, and soon after starting the game began making up little bets each round.
Receptionist's fiance started with "If you get a strike, we'll get married this summer."
It was mostly betting between the couples, and between The ex-Ex and I, it was mostly betting on rounds of drinks. Then The ex-Ex got a strike and I had to buy us a round of drinks. When it was my turn to go, i turned to him. "Okay, so if I get a strike, what do I get?"
"The next round," He replied.
"I just got a round, we can't do that again until it's time for another."
"Okay... I'll pay for the iPod case you want." With his discount at Best Buy, he had told me earlier that this would only cost about four bucks.
"What?! No way! That's so cheap," I whined.
"Well, what do you want then?"
I racked my brain for an expensive gift. All I could think of was a big fat ring, so I mimed slipping a ring onto my finger. Half-way through I realized that I was slipping the imaginary ring onto my left ring finger.
I laughed with embarrassment and mumbled "Just kidding!" over my shoulder as I looked for the bowling ball.
