Advil, the Miracle Drug

Rick Coffman has been my Saturday morning bowling partner for oh so many years. We can’t remember when we started bowling, but it was probably back in the 1980s. Our first bowling alley burned down after being heavily damaged by a tropical storm that hit St. Petersburg. Our second bowling place informed us one Saturday morning that they were adding leagues and had no more room for us. Liberty Lanes, our latest bowling establishment, meets all of our needs to satisfy our two-game bowling appetites. Although Rick is younger than I, we have sort of blended age-wise over the years. I have teased him about our bowling scores not improving. Last week, when he complimented me on my score of 155, he asked, “What do you think is the reason for your improvement?” I responded, “two Advil.” He said, “I also take Advil every Saturday morning before bowling. We agreed that perhaps we should call our bowling partnership, “The Advils.”
