Summer Update on Spitting and the Boy

I mentioned that baseball season is over, and the opportunity for professional spitting has also ended for my son.

I was wrong.  I forgot completely about the swimming pool.

Boys spit, and when there is an ample supply of water, they spit more.  My son spits water in the pool like a fountain.  Just like in baseball, there are different kinds of spits.  If there are girls in the pool, there is the "gotcha" spit -- coming up from under the water, mouth full of chlorinated liquid, aimed directly at the girl's head.  If there is no one in the pool, there is the "humpback whale" spit, done while floating on his back, spraying water above his head just like a whale spouting water in the air.  If he is on the diving board, there is the "preparation" spit, aiming the water beside the diving board in an effort to give him inspiration to do the no-hands dive or the cannonball or whatever trick suits him at the time.

When he leaves the pool and dries off, there are multiple spits, apparently in an effort to rid himself of all excess chlorinated water before going inside.  In all, the pool generates more spits than baseball, which was a sad realization for me.  Now I don't know what we're going to do about spitting when the summer is over and school begins.

Oh...yes.  There is fall baseball.  Spitting will live forever!

Is this kid being raised right?

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.

The quest for fashionable clothes never ends; it’s just that what is in vogue is always changing.…
