This is George the Younger playing catcher at Sunday's bball game. This is my stellar ability to catch a photo of the ball trajectory only milliseconds before beaning him on his well protected noggin. The photo also captures that he has his eyes closed while awaiting the beaning.
There's a life lesson for all of us in the photo:
Sometimes you get beaned when you most expect to.
Sometimes you get beaned when you least expect to.
In either case, it's wise to keep your eyes closed while it's happening.
Better yet, when armed with the right tools, it makes the most sense to at least get your damn glove up to protect yourself.
Here's to keeping your own glove up. Happy Wednesday!
