Competition: Mini Golf

Prompt: What activity, task, or game most brings out your competitive streak?

Mini golf.

Hands down, mini golf.

I don’t know what it is about this game that awakens such deep-seated rage in me, but without fail it claws its way to the surface as soon as I get my club and colorful little ball. Could it be the zaniness of the course? The inevitable windmill? The way each hole ups the ante?

Perhaps. I may never know.

What I do know is I didn’t play often as a child (so explain that one to me).

The other thing I know? That I truly haven’t played mini golf in YEARS. Why? Because I know thyself.

SIDENOTE: My partner has made jokes about taking me to a course to see me in action…but it’s yet to happen.
