I always tell Will, if you want me to participate in activities I don't want to, you just have to compliment my skills at said activity very profusely. I can become very easily convinced that I am a prodigy at pretty much anything with the right level of encouragement. As many souls have lamented, there isn't much to do in Yakima. So everyday this Thanksgiving break I got pushed into "throwing around the ol' pigskin" (and yes, William really does say this phrase, verbatim). Luckily, with such sincere compliments as "Wow, what a cannon for an arm" (I can barely throw the length of the yard), and happy nods whenever I caught that slippery pigskin, I kind of enjoyed my time "playing football."
Football skill I excel most at: Touchdown dances
Football players need nourishment. Turkey leg break.
After we tired of throwing footballs, we started to throw rotten pumpkins.
And then rotten watermelons...
