These nice days are taunting me. I think I'll go for a jog outside.

I've started reading The Bell Jar. I've heard that it's very depressing, but I'm actually enjoying it. Granted, I'm only on chapter 5. The character Esther reminds me of someone I know...but I can't place the person exactly. Doreen is hilarious. I can't wait to read more.

My offer to go golfing is still in the air. Anyone interested in a quick 9 hole this weekend?

Golf.

Sounds ... pleasant, actually. Unfortunately, I don't own clubs anymore. Does the school own some that I can borrow until I can get my own custom-fit set?

If so, then I'll go.

I don't own my own clubs either, but I'm sure the course will have ones available for rent.

If you decide to play more often, I think you can probably get about as good clubs as you could rent for less (well, less than the cumulative cost anyway) at secondhand shops.

Now I'm curious. I'm trying to see what I could get for less than the cost of shipping mine from home.

I'd be more than happy to buy you a set of clubs.

No obligation or expectation. Just a friendly gesture.

'Tis very kind of you -- I quite like the set I've got, actually, it just happens to be across the ocean right now.

Once I've got any set with me, you can expect me to want to play, barring crises... well, or scheduling it Sunday mornings. I almost went to play a round with Dr. Essex until he said that was when he wanted to go -- just as well, I suppose.

Sure

Sounds like a date, then.

I'm quite rusty, I will confess. And since my imprisonment, I'm fairly sure that my form has deteriorated.

If you can put up with an inept partner, I'd be delighted.

I haven't played since I got here, myself. I imagine you'll get the knack of it again before too long.

If you wanted, perhaps we could start with a driving range. Get the feel of the clubs and all. Well, aside from putting. :)

I agree.

I need to go to the driving ranges before I try any course. Let's start slow.

That might be a good idea. I'll look into some clubs if this golfing thing works out for me.

I played golf once at the Kabul Golf Club, quite a number of years ago. Back when the course was still rather heavily mined, and there were still three abandoned Soviet tanks and a few vintage artillery pieces sitting around on the fairways.

Now, that was golf.

Um, Nathan, what were you doing playing on a golf course with _mines_ in the fairways?

It was a bet. If we lost, the Taliban got Dom.

If we won... um. Ask me when you're older.

Do I want to know what the Taliban were going to _do_ with Dom, boss man?

And...grr. How _much_ older?

From: [identity profile] x-cable.livejournal.com
Uh, well. Dom at that age... okay, so she needed a muzzle. And I was all soft-hearted and stuff and insisted that no, it was just a phase and she'd get over it. But then she had to start insulting... certain measurements of some of the religious fanatics I was trying to negotiate with that week, and well... suddenly we're playing golf for her safe-conduct out of Afghanistan and... wait, I wasn't going to tell you what else we got when we won, was I?

Thirty. At least thirty.

Hm. It occurs to me that I could probably just ask Dom, as she has no such compunctions about waiting until I'm older to tell me the interesting parts. *grins and fires up email*

I've just learned that Dom is currently in Vladiovostok drowning her sorrows with a pair of Russian army officers and doesn't plan to surface for at least a week or two, Doug.

But go ahead. If she happens to check her email, you may get an entertaining fable. Or even the truth. Depends on how much vodka she's had.

*grin* Either way, should be entertaining, no?

Yes, I know, dear.

Do I need to come find you and distract you? :)

Not fair using that icon. Headache. Bad.

Headache? I'll be right over.

Sounds like it was dangerous!

I'd love to try it :)
