What's in your wallet, Lauren McMahon?

A bowling ball and pins.

Lauren McMahon: My name is Lauren McMahon and we are in Pasadena, Calif. Just like some cards and an old Sun and Sail Club card.

I have bowling member's card. Yeah, I was on a bowling league for a while and then I moved and I stopped bowling and I completely forgot that I even owned this.

Well my grandmother made me stop bowling because she worked at the bowling alley, and she started her own league on Wednesday nights and she said, "Lauren, I need someone to bowl and I'll pay for you." And I said, "Cool."

So I got to bowl for free every week, then I stopped because I moved. I do miss bowling a lot. It was a lot of fun and now my average has gone down so much. It used to be like in the 150s and now it's 110. And I miss it, but I have to pay for it now so I don't want to go back.
