Why the game of golf can be so traumatic

Picking up the golf ball, caricature by Artmagenta.
Dorothy likes playing golf,
but she is afraid of crocodiles.
Bad combination?




Street Survey
What is your most common dream?


DOROTHY:  Every night before a round of golf, I dream that we can't find my golf ball. After a while of searching, we look in the golf hole. And there it is! Hole in one!

When I bend down to pick up the ball from the hole, out pops a gigantic crocodile and swallows me!

How do you interpret that?

Nowadays I always ask someone else to pick up my golf ball.

How do you train your pet?


ING-MARIE:  I love my little goldfish Billy. Ain't he cute?!

I bring him to the park every day and I show him what he should be afraid of and what is harmless. Cats eat fish so beware. Dogs are just curious, you can tease them and so on...

And after a completed lesson he gets a reward in the form of fish food.

Albeit important, street surveys can be importunate and unpleasant

What is the first thing you do in the morning when you wake up?


EMILY: I am very tired in the mornings so therefore I have a good trick to get started. I'm leaving right out of bed on a jog.

One problem: When you're so tired, there are no guarantees of normal behavior. Two times I have forgotten to dress into jogging suit and have been running dressed in my nightgown. On the other hand it has been a very popular event for people in the morning rush.

Street Survey
Are you planning to start a diet?


MARION:  I am on a very special diet.
I love donuts and I think if could just stop eating them my obesity problems would be over. I'm training my dog to help me quit the donuts. Just like the drug police and customs have dogs that help them find drugs, I am now training Fido to find my donuts. And when he has found the donuts, he eats them which results in no donuts left for me! It's brilliant!

We've been training for two months now and Fido is making some progress, but still I find the donuts before him. Yummy!
