Just like my colleagues on the various other Active websites here at Magicalia Towers, I love it when new gizmos arrive on our doorstep for us to play with.
The latest piece of [useless] technology to catch my eye is the Starter Coin.
You see, when playing a friendly fourball, we can’t be trusted to make adult decisions such as who tees off first on our own. So this coin was created to make sure non-existent bickering doesn’t become a reality.
As I’m sure you can work out from the picture, you all huddle around it and let it determine in which order you fire your balls off down the fairway while a clubhouse full of people mutter between themselves that you have finally lost the plot.
Hang on a second. It’s not a complete waste of money; there’s also a ball marker in the middle.
But then you need to devise a whole new way of deciding who gets to use it…
