Bill Belew has raised 2 bi-cultural kids, now 34 and 30. And he and his wife are now parenting a 3rd, Mia, who is 8.
How unlucky can you be?
You take a long bent ‘bar’ my wife calls it, otherwise known as a golf club and whack a perfectly innocent little ball filled with dimples. Of course, that smack in the face will knock the dimples off of anyone.
But, do you know why it takes so long to find a golf ball after you hit it? The ball hides until it has enough time to get its dimples back.
Suppose you hit that little puppy and it flew about 180 yards, and then bounced real high and started to roll towards the pin, then nearer to the cup, right at the lip and …and…and…then fell in.
What are you going to do? Celebrate!
Yep, with your credit card. In Japan, a hole in one is called an ‘albatross’.
If you are, um, lucky enough to get a hole in one, while out on the links conducting business, of course, it can cost you more than a $1000. Yikes!
But for about $20 a year, you can now buy insurance that will cover you AGAINST the possibility to make the sweetest of the sweet shots in golf.
Are you taking your Japanese business partner out for a rounds? You’d better check your insurance.
As for me, I like that game where you throw the ball…and then wait…and someone rolls it back to you.
