But I hate bowling. (Ten-pin, not crown green or boules)
Its not 'a great night out' and its not much of a sport.
For a while, I was convinced I was adopted or there had been a mix up in the hospital because of bowls - my dad was an excellent bowler - he dated the UK women's champion for years, so then my mum felt she had to become good at it too.
I also detest multiplexes - 10 screens & not a decent intelligent film showing on one of them. Often these crimes against culture are found next to bowling alleys. Throw in a few fast food places to satisfy the unthinking masses and you've a perfect example of what is wrong with this country.
