Quote of the day

A boy cannot begin playing ball too early. I might almost say that while he is still creeping on all fours, he should have a bouncing rubber ball.

    what’s it called when you long for another chance? nostalgic lust? whatever, i’d like another chance at being on all fours.

    • Hm, not sure about what term would be appropriate, but I do think one’s caretakers need to be in on the plan. Or at least fate needs to have a hand — a la Kurt Cobain using his time grounded in his room to play the guitar for hours on end.

      • Steve Myers says:

        Bummer that Cobain didn’t stick around for one more year, to see those 95 Mariners or maybe he wasn’t a baseball fan?…. but years like that could turn anyone to drink for joy.

        • Cobain and baseball — not something I’ve ever come across before, but it’s an interesting question. That might be a fun afternoon research project one of these days.
