The Perfect Pitch

The other day, I was playing outside with my son. We played a little football, followed by baseball. I was the pitcher. We played for about twenty minutes, then he wanted to switch.

"Mama, I'm the best pitcher!" he said.

I looked at him sideways. "How do you figure that?"

"Because I know how to pitch the perfect pitch."

"Really?" I asked. "I have to see this!"

"You have to be a really good player to hit it."

"I am a good player," I said.

"Okay. Are you ready?"

I nodded.

He winded up the pitch, and then walked forward.

"Dude, what are you doing?" I asked.

He grinned. "Pitching the perfect pitch."

He dropped the ball at the tip of my left foot.

"That was a perfect pitch?" I asked.

"Yep. It went exactly where I wanted it to go!"

Oy!


Before I go, I'd like to wish all Americans a very Happy Fourth of July!

  16. You don't need to be a great player if you can find a killer loophole. I love that kind of mentality.

  18. Though I'm not familiar with the rules of the game I'm guessing dropping the ball at your feet isn't strictly speaking one of them. Still, you have to love his logic.
