FORE! As a golf newbie this is one of the latest additions to my growing fairway vocabulary.† When you hear this from behind you in the fairway, you better cover your head with whatever you can quickly grab (your hands if there is nothing else).† It means that a golf ball is on its way to your general direction, traveling anywhere from 30 to 50 kph.
Now hereís a short humor post about entitled “FORE.”
TWO WOMEN WERE playing golf. One teed off and watched in horror as her ball headed directly toward a foursome of men playing the next hole.
The ball hit one of the men. He immediately clasped his hands together at his groin, fell to the ground and proceeded to roll around in agony.
The woman rushed down to the man, and immediately began to apologize.
‘Please allow me to help. I’m a Physical Therapist and I know I could relieve your pain if you’d allow me, she told him.
‘Oh, no, I’ll be all right. I’ll be fine in a few minutes,’ the man replied.
He was in obvious agony, lying in the fetal position, still clasping his hands together at his groin. At her persistence, however, he finally allowed her to help.
She gently took his hands away and laid them to the side, loosened his pants and put her hands inside. She administered tender and artful massage for several long moments and asked, ‘How does that feel’?
It feels great, but I still think my thumb’s broken. #
