Last night I’m listening in as my son plays Team Fortress online. He was mostly talking to a girl online about ballet. Daniel is a gifted dancer and at age 14 is on scholarship and dancing “pre-professionally”. He trains some 20+ hours a week. The kid is crazy strong.
One of the other players starts giving him grief. This kid is going on and on about football and how strong he is.
Daniel comments, “I’m pretty strong.”
Other kid, “I’ll bet you can’t throw a football forty yards!”
Daniel was quiet for a moment, “I don’t know. I don’t throw balls. I throw girls.”
