A Conversation

"I wish I could be an arachnid."

"So you could be a spider?" I said.

"No. Being an arachnid just means you have 8 legs."

"Oh. ... What would you do with all those extra legs? ...... For sports?"


"I didn't know you liked sports."

"I like golf. That takes legs," Joey said.

I smile.

"And I sorta like soccer. If it's not a competition."

"You don't like competitions?"

"I hate competitions."

"Why?" I asked.

"'Cuz it's not fun -- a competition."

Well said.
