Prime Ministered

I joined a bowling league. One of my teammates is former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.

Margaret is a really good bowler. She has a powerful flick of the wrist toss that sends the ball screaming down the alley into the pins.

I’m a crappy bowler. I have a doctor’s note that allows me to put the gutter ball preventer up. Even still I tend to knock down one to two pins with both my turns.

Margaret is a good sport and always cheers my efforts. She says enthusiasm is the secret to life.

I told Margaret that though I may be private-natured, I get enthusiastic on the inside. Behind my stoicism is a world of fireworks, “Hail Hail, the gang’s all here!”, and cheering stadium crowds.

Margaret said, “Whatever they may be, I never belie a man’s efforts to better himself.”
