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?"
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!"
Before I go, I'd like to wish all Americans a very Happy Fourth of July!
let him try it with professional players.....ReplyDelete
I don't think they'll find that acceptable!Delete
That way definitely works! lol Have a good weekend! :)ReplyDelete
The ball went where he wanted it to go!Delete
Ha, the joys of childhood. Heart warming story. Have a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Thanks. You too!Delete
lol I think they'd call that a ballReplyDelete
Yes. That's exactly what it was. ;0)Delete
What perfect control! lolReplyDelete
Your son rides a logic train that cracks me up!ReplyDelete
You have to love the way he thinks!Delete
Your son is so funny Sherry xoxReplyDelete

Thanks, Barbara! I hope you enjoyed your 4th, too!Delete
You just can't argue with that.ReplyDelete
Can't get any more controlled than that!Delete
Great post Sherry, yope you thought about the poor football lol.ReplyDelete
Yes - just like on your post. ;)Delete
Loopholes! He should be a lawyer.ReplyDelete
He'd probably be good at it. Actually, both of my kids would be good at that! ;0)Delete
He is always a smart guy. Regards to him.ReplyDelete
Always thinking outside the box.Delete
Well, it was perfect in his way.ReplyDelete
Hahaha! Too cute, dear! Happy holidays! xoxoReplyDelete
Would that be a balk?ReplyDelete
Haha! Yes, I think you could call it that.Delete
The New York Yankees could really use him!ReplyDelete
Haha! I'll send him over there.Delete
You don't need to be a great player if you can find a killer loophole. I love that kind of mentality.ReplyDelete
He can find all the loopholes!Delete
He's a better pitcher than I am.ReplyDelete
bet if you did it his way, you'd be great, too!Delete
this is good informationReplyDelete
Thanks for visiting!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
He wouldn't get away with that if he was playing on a real team!Delete
