116. Excel at Lawn Sports

The solstice has passed and the summer is upon us.  It’s garden party time, and that can mean only one thing: Lawn Sports!

Be it Bocce Ball, Lawn Darts or Croquet, you need to be able to hold your own.  Better yet, you need to dominate.

The truth is, nobody at the party is going to be particularly good at any of these games.  At most, you get one or two chances to play them each summer.  Your competition will be weak, effectively opening the door for a memorable display of grace, style and cold-hearted efficiency.

Your form with each one of these games is just as important as your superiority.  Your balletic, swanlike throws shall be the talk of the backyard, forcing all guests to finish their Pimm’s, put down their cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off, and golf clap with the elegance and flourish of a Jane Austen novel.
