A Conversation

“Okay, gather around. You know the rules. We select teams based on baseball and writing ability."

"What if I can’t swing a bat?"

"You’re a right-handed writer?"

“Uh, yeah.”

"We’ve got another outfielder. That makes 23. If you can really write, we’ll move you to shortstop or pitcher. Words play trumps baseball experience."

"I write a mean limerick."”

“Let’s hear it."

"There was an old man writing his obit.
Frankly, he just felt o’er it.
Two wives and a child,
None meek or mild.
They all want his money forthwith."

“We have a pitcher!"

Haha, bizarre, but I love it! I have a feeling my school sporting career might have gone a lot better if the teams were selected like this...

Hahaha I feel like that's how we would pick teams at the freewrite house! Great conversation!

I was giggling all through, what if the freewrite house did this too, then
" we have a pitcher "
