Really? Golf in the snow? Of course not. But to perpetuate a joke? Oh, that’s priceless. Today, I’m so very grateful for embracing one of my top 5 values — humor.
The back story: As we’re sliding past the golf course today, Charlie gets a text from his brother, who lives where it’s warmer. Charlie snaps the snowy scene to send to his brother.
Me: “You should tell him you’re playing this afternoon.”
Charlie, via text: “I have a 2 p.m. tee time.”
Brother: “I love you man, but are you INSANE?”
Charlie: “I have a neon ball. It will be easy to find.”
And the game is on.
Me: “Oooo. Get a club and a bright golf ball. I’ll take your picture and we’ll send it to him as proof.”
The rest is a cold tale of laughs outside in the snow.
Humor lives near the top of my values. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.
