Last night I dreamt...about bowling??

Here's what Dream Moods has to say about that:

"To dream that you are bowling, refers to the strikes, hits, and misses in your life. Perhaps you are expressing some regrets if you are bowling a bad game. And if you are bowling strike after strike, then it suggests that you are on your way toward a successful future. It may also be a pun on your striking performance and/or stellar ability.

To dream that you bowl a gutter ball, suggests that you are stuck in a rut and need to make some changes of where your life is headed.

Alternatively, bowling and bowling alleys may also be a metaphor for sexual conquest. Consider all the sexual innuendos that are at play in the bowling alley. The pin deck is symbolic of the womb or vagina (as is with with any dark receptacle like caves, bowls, containers, etc.) The pins and bowling balls, can be viewed as masculine symbols."

All I can remember is that at first the balls were made of foam, like Nerf balls. There were finger holes and different sized balls and everything, just like real bowling balls, except they were Nerfy. I bowled with them for a while, probably not doing very well, before I decided I needed a real, shiny, heavy bowling ball. I think the one I chose was yellow. Very shiny. Very heavy. Very real.

Little known fact: I was on the bowling team in 11th grade. Very briefly. Just long enough to learn that there's a method to bowling, but not quite long enough to "get" the method.
