Hey everybody! Last Saturday Lil asked me to come putt putting with her. I’m not sure why, but Lil asks me to do a lot of things that I have never done before. Who knew there was more in this world than sitting in a good tree with a fresh banana?! I wasn’t sure what putt putting was, but because of my sock monkey adventurous spirit, I was willing to give it a shot! (putt putt joke haha)
We went to a place called Downview Sports Center. It was really cool. When we went to pay, the manager got really excited when he saw me. He must be a fan of my blog because he let me play for free!
After thanking him for his generosity we hit the first hole. Lil explained the game to me perfectly! I learned that all I had to do was to hit a colorful ball into a hole in the ground with an oddly shaped stick. To me, this sounded like something we could have done at home. Nevertheless, I set up to go first.
After a bit of confusion, Lil turned me around so I faced the right way. The stick I was using seemed really heavy compared to the ones I was used to at home. I tried to swing it back but it just wasn’t working well.
Finally after many failed attempts, Lil held me up so I could get a better swing. Though this worked much better, it is still embarrassing for a sock monkey to need help with swinging.
It was a long day, but with Lil’s help I played really well. I even finished with the highest score! I knew we sock monkeys couldn’t be bad at swinging. All in all it was fun. Of course, sitting in my favorite tree with a fresh banana is also fun!! It’s much easier swinging too!
