For those of you who aren't on Twitter yet, just get over there and do it. You can meet all kinds of fun strangers on Twitter, and some day, you might even end up golfing with them. That's what happened to me.
Here is @nelsoneroni, for instance.
And here is @erinfelder, who delights in making her putts, as you can see:
And then there's @jenfloyd08, who plays so many sports that she often combines them to be more efficient with her time:
I, on the other hand, am a bit of a golf novice. Yesterday was the 5th time I've officially golfed. I lost a few balls when they hit trees (I didn't realize the trees had magnets in them, which attract the magnets in the balls - it's all so mysterious, really...)
Surprisingly, one of the balls I grabbed from my bag wasn't a real ball. It was lip gloss inside a fake ball. I got it at the Jeld Wen golf tournament last year at Sunriver. I thought it was clever, but then forgot about it. Turns out if you take a hard swing at a lip gloss golf ball, it shatters.
But the lip gloss still works!
I think we should have more Twitter Golf tournaments. It's a great way to get to know people in real life, and somehow justify all the time you waste online when you might be working, or something.
You can say things like "Oh, but I'm networking!" and "@nelsoneroni and I are going to do a cable access show, and we had to interview these other Twitter ladies to see if they'd join us for the synchronized swimming, and hula-hoop segments!"
Because then maybe your whole golf outing could be a tax write-off, and save you enough money in the long run to make a case for buying some cute golf-shoes.
