years-old, being a part of a local T-Ball league. I dedicatedly showed up to every practice, in preparation for the one single game our little team would play at the end of the season.
When the big day finally rolled around, I came downstairs to find my brother Mike watching the movie Shrek, and I turned to my mother said, “Actually, Mom, I don’t wanna play. I wanna watch Shrek.”
