the name of the dream:

a good catch

 

with an awake-time acquaintance of twenty-plus years ago

 

we were in an area about two metres wide and roughly six or seven metres long

 

we had a soft ball, a tennis-ball i think, and the game was to get the ball to touch the wall behind the person

 

the rules were... a player couldn't bounce the ball off the sides or the floor or the ceiling of the room and the ball had to be thrown under-arm

 

because my under-arm throw was stronger than the other player i was scoring twice as many points

 

he was a trier if nothing else

 

as my tally grew he became more determined and placed some good balls

 

the fact that he was younger than me by a generation told him he should be winning and that he wasn't winning only spurred him on

 

i was toying with him and was laughing more and more as he started getting sweaty but had no intention of giving up

 

have you ever seen the determination on the face of a child who was giving it their all ?

 

i was laughing out loud as i woke
