OPENING DAY By Bluesdad
Finally, no snow in the yard. Half-day of school.
Bluesboy batting. Bluesdad pitching.
[Opening chatter: Bluesboy "Did you know there is one "strike one"; two "strike twos" and three "strike threes." Bluesdad, "NO THERE'S NOT!"]
First pitch of the season hit high and deep to centerfield over the neighbor's driveway for a home run.
Second pitch--a high, hard one, inside. Bluesboy knocked down, but not hit.
Third pitch--hit high and hard onto the neighbor's porch for a home run.
Bluesdad batting. Bluesboy pitching.
First pitch--fouled off to the first base side onto our porch.
Second pitch--fouled straight back into the other neighbor's yard.
Third pitch--a swing and a miss on a high hard one on Bluesdad's hands.
Chatter: Bluesdad, "What happened to the three "strike threes"??!!
