A couple of slices out of history today! On this day in 1862, the carved wooden bowling ball was first invented; before that, bowling balls were made of chiseled stone! The wooden one eventually led to our plastic composite balls of today. Also in the 1800s, on this day in 1852, Emma Snodgrass was arrested in Boston for wearing trousers, which was apparently not a thing done by ladies at the time.
Illegal pants are one thing. I’m waiting for Illegal Tube Top Day and Illegal Flesh-Colored Leggings Day.
