I often ask inane questions...

Okay, so this comes under the category of 'stupid questions I ask because I'm curious', but, does anyone have any hobbies that they're not especially good at? And why do you keep doing it if you're not?

For instance, knitting. I would think you'd only knit if you have the ability to do so without dropping stitches all the time. Why would you spend so much time making a scarf only to have it be this inferior product?

I know that lots of men are supposed to play golf badly. Why? Why keep playing? Where is the enjoyment in doing something and not doing it well? Do they think they're going to get better? Seriously? Even after all those years of playing and doing it badly?

Maybe I'm way too competitive or goal oriented or something. I don't know. There are lots of people who seem to know they kind of suck but still enjoy doing things. I'm not like that, I don't think. If I don't know I suck, then okay, fun ahoy - but to be aware of my inability and to still enjoy myself? That doesn't happen.

So... where's the enjoyment from?
