It was the Finance Department Bowling & Pizza Social. It was scheduled from 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Now, bowling is not an activity that I should ever participate in. I had explained to my boss and my co-workers the hazards of me participating and that it would end badly. I, of course, was pursuaded to participate in the team buidling activity (I was assigned to a team)....
After we were given our shoes we were directed to our assigned lanes. I couldn't find a ball that had the right size wholes and that wasn't so heavy that my arm would be yanked out of socket...
First frame, second bowl I tripped over my shoes; tried to catch myself and self correct; my left foot hit the greased up lane and I went down...
4 frames later I could not lift the bowling ball and I had a bad headache.
I sat out the rest of the game. At 4:45 p.m. I walked out of the bowling ally; got in my car; drove across the street to the Urgent Care and requested my normal doctor.
"I'm sorry, Dr Lundquist is on vacation this week. He will be back in on Monday."
I signed in and waited for the doctor on call.
6:30 p.m. I was seen by the doctor...
7:30 p.m. I was dropping off prescriptions at the pharmacy...
8:30 p.m. reclined on the couch with an ice pack on my back.
9:30 p.m. drowsy from taking:
I am supposed to spend the weekend doing nothing.
I have an appointment with my regular doctor on Monday.
Bowling - not a good idea
