Friends from college organized a reunion of sorts as our friend, Loiue, returned home after 8 years of stay in the U.S. A lot of things have transpired in all our lives in the 8 years that we haven't seen each other. As expected, all were looking forward to the rare get-together.
With the four of us being decent bowlers, Arnel and Joel decided to have the reunion at the SM Bowling Center in North Edsa. After the usual greetings and a bit of catching up with each other's lives, we divided ourselves into 2 teams. Louie and I, being former doubles champions, formed one team. Arnel and Joel formed the other team. As I expected, the games were far from being played seriously. Arnel would often try to break our concentration by employing dirty tactics. Loiue too found the bowling center too hot that effectively prevented him from playing his usual game. I, on the other hand, wasted so much energy trying to stop Arnel from breaking our concentration. As a result, we lost all of our matches.
But more than the games, what I truly enjoyed was the great company that my friends provided. We shared a lot of good laughs as we talked about people we knew in college, our misadventures when we were so much younger and the incredibly insane things that we do today. Julius managed to arrive as we were about to wrap up our games, which all the more made our reunion a blast. Despite the unexpected loss in bowling, I was happy to have won a great time with great friends.
