  •  Tip jar doesn't have to preempt your tip jar (4+ / 0-)


    I liked this part:

    But I noticed they were the only ones who actually enjoyed themselves on the course. They laughed, ribbing each other good-naturedly for their errant shots.  Maybe it wasn’t a function of their age that made them take so long.  Maybe they were just having too much fun.  Inadvertently, I had found my people.  They knew summer was for play.  

    Even though years ago my mom-in-law (on private courses) made us (us=
    the female relatives golfing together) just pick up our balls and scoot onward
    if we were too slow.

    Oh, and what a great story about your first time out!

    Loved this, too:

    So though my career as a caddy was short-lived, I learned an invaluable lesson: while the gap between what you can expect in life and what you actually get is often wide, reconciling that gap is something we must work hard at.

    A poet's work is to name the unnameable, to point at frauds, to take sides, start arguments, shape the world, and stop it going to sleep. ...Salman Rushdie
