That One Time We Went Bowling ~ set of 6 coasters

Cocktail Conversation:

My mom was a trouper. Twelve years of cancer treatments, on and off, and it never stopped her from living her life on her terms.

One afternoon, as we walked out of the Cancer Center after a round of chemo, she asked me if I wanted to go bowling. “Let’s go tomorrow morning,” she said. “When we can have a Bloody Mary.”

And so we did.

We rented shoes, picked out our balls, ordered Bloody Marys and french fries, and played two rounds. Sitting in the trendy bowling alley, surrounded by hipsters and body piercings and tattoos, my mom and I tuned out the world and belly laughed at our own jokes, discussed the merits of a Bloody Mary as a complete meal, used our own system for scoring since we didn’t know the legit way, and wondered aloud about the burlesque-quality of this particular bowling alley—its red velvet walls, black vinyl chairs, orange-glow lighting.

“I guess someone wanted to do it their way,” she said. “Ya gotta respect that.”

By the time we got home, she was totally spent, having used up every last ounce of energy her body had left that the chemo hadn’t gotten to yet. But it was her day, her way.

Ya gotta respect that.

“Don’t take voice lessons. Do it your way.” {Johnny Cash}
