Several of my friends have mentioned that Merlin is a good baseball player so I decided to go watch him this afternoon. Did you know that they have to hit the ball and catch the ball in the air too? That seems like a lot. Merlin also plays the pitcher some of the time and plays at the first base.
Sports are not my thing, but I think he has a lot of natural talent. I was a jazz dancer when I was younger, so I am sure he gets his athleticism from me. He might end up being popular someday! It will be great for Starling to have a popular athlete for a brother instead of a genius nerd.
I only watched a tiny bit of the game (boring) but everyone seemed to think I was a supper mom for having such an athletic son. Except the “team mom”, Shirley, said that I had missed my shifts making hot dogs at the snack shack. I explained that I would never, ever sign up for that. Honestly!
Maybe I should hire some coaches and other trainers this summer to make sure he keeps ahead of the competition. I’ll ask Ty if he is available. He will probably want a distraction from his broken heart by then anyway.
