Why You Love Them II


Took this shot last month as all these punks were getting ready for their junior prom.  I coached half the boys in baseball for several years, and have been teasing many of the girls for just as long.  Yeah, my younger son’s in there somewhere.

Most of these kids have artistic inclinations, which means–not being jocks–the high schools don’t give them the attention and financing that they do, say, the football squads.  That’s ok.  We, the parents, did.  That’s why I coached them in ball: there’s nothing like teaching an artist how to hit a home run. 

After we took this photo they all went off to dinner.  Pity the poor waiter.
