What Then?

The manager of the Saint Louis Cardinals had really liked the way Bubba John could throw a ball, but when Bubba turned down an offer to play for the “Cards”, and said he wanted to play for the Yankees, the Cards manager had angrily told him if he went elsewhere, he could never be a real Cardinal.  “What if he’s right,” thought Bubba, “what will I be, a vulture, a sparrow (perhaps Jack Sparrow?) or maybe a goose?” Did he get a choice?. . . .  David, Sf.G.

Tough Transition


Ruben was going through a tough transition from kid to adult.  He had the size, and he could fly (though his father complained that flight insurance for inexperienced teens was horribly expensive), but the hardest part was the scruffy look as his feathers slowly  turned full red, and his voice changed from childish cheeps to someone to reckon with.  Instinctively he knew, in spite of the pent up desire, he was not exactly a chick magnet . . . .  David, Sf.G.
