Yesterday was the beginning of our Wednesday golf league and I was checking in at the pro shop. I am the only customer in the place at this time.
New gal, she did not know much. So I am standing there, notice the shoe lace on my left shoe was frayed.
She is occupied so I decided to light the frayed end with my lighter and tidy it up. Well it created an instant big flame, soot and smoke flying.
Wow, this is going to turn into a scene, it stinks too.
I decide quickly to do a John Wayne and pinch the flame out.
Bad idea, big glob of molten plastic on my index finger. Holy shit, that is hot, and it hurts.
I need water on my finger quick, so I lick it. Well now the molten plastic transfers to my tongue. It burned like hell on my tongue. I spit it out..... with manners. I am in a high class pro shop here.
In about 15 seconds I have suffered two injuries and much anomosity over a frayed shoe lace.

This is probably a hoax. There's no way in hell I'm sending you a donation for your shoelaces.

I could not make this up, you know where to send the money. We had a lot of fun with it in the bar afterwards.

I'd say "there's no way in hell somebody would try to lie about something like that", but then I run the risk of being wrong for the 2nd time this week.

ROFL That is terrible and funny all at the same time. I hope you at least shot a good round. Perhaps velcro is in your future. :)

The same thing happened to me, but with six shoelaces.

Actually there was an upside. It helped me keep my right hand out of my shots, 42 with a quadrupple bogey, and a double. I "four chipped" for the quad. That was another first.

I reccommend the shoes with the velcro straps. They're idiot proof. ;)

No but I did drive through there a lot.

Now I am going to be paranoid, thanks. That tree will not leave me alone.

Doesn't sound like the smartest thing to do. But what do you expect from a guy that loves Dodges.
