Misspent Youth

We were left standing there looking at one another with incredulous looks on our faces. My eyes shifted from Marc the driver, to the tree, the cart and back to Marc. I couldn’t believe what had happened. The cart laid there, window cracked, chassis bent and the engine stopped. How would we explain this to the clubhouse? We had to think of an alibi, and quick.

A couple of years ago, a group of peers and I, decided to hold a golf tournament known as the “Spite Open”. It was labeled this because throughout our close circle of friends there was continual verbal assault, even though we had been friends for many years.

We lied to the Golf Club and after a strenuous inspection; the result was a two and a half thousand dollar fine and a ban for life at that Golf Course. It must be said, that now, as I am education and more experienced in life, looking back at what I did can be seen as very immature and childish behavior, however the teen years plagues our mind and makes us do rash and compulsive things which seem to be hilarious at the time, and on nights after if it was caught on camera, but later in life, the evilness of youth slowly deteriorates away.
