My daughter steals my Comets. It's a long-standing problem. She used to steal them then lose them, but she is older now and not at bad at losing plastic. She's still bad at taking my discs, though. She usually in her mind makes a "trade" i.e. "I'll take this Z Comet that is in your bag and you can have this 152g Sure Grip Element that I don't want." Anyway, she has a bag full of what should be my Comets.

We were at a DG store this week and they had one 2017 MJ Comet and one 2018 MJ Comet. She paid cash $ for her own Comet, so now she has a 2017 MJ Comet that was never at any time my Comet. This should be progress.

We left the store and went to a course that neither one of us had played before. There were a lot of wooded holes. She had a brand new disc in her bag. She literally teed off on every hole with that Comet. She played the whole round with a Comet and a Judge that she also just bought. I bought the 2018 MJ Comet but left it in the car, I had my regular bag full of discs I knew. Kid kicked my ***. I'm playing pinball wizard and the kid keeps throwing the Comet up the fairway toward the basket.

I kinda miss the little kid who used to lose my Comets.

Favorite cardmate response so far to a well executed Comet shot:

"That was a pleasure to watch."

I received highfives from everybody too.

Not a fan of the Comet, but I'm a fan of spending a day playing disc golf with one's kid. Cherish the memories; those kids grow up just too darn fast...

I have a bunch of "fancy" Comets waiting in backup...but I still rely on my first X Comet, first Z Comet and a new heavier Z Comet.

Nice. I've gotten the "Nice shot. What disc was that?" An Undertaker forehand has earned me a few of those too.

Anytime I throw forehand I get a completely different kind of, "What was that?"
