A little boy was overheard talking to himself as he strutted through the backyard, wearing his baseball cap and toting a bat,
“I’m the greatest hitter in the world!” he announced.
Then he tossed the ball into the air, swung at it, and missed.
“Strike one!” he yelled. Undaunted, he picked up the ball and said again, “I’m the greatest hitter in the world!”
He tossed the ball in the air. When it came down he swung again and missed. “Strike two!” he cried.
The boy then paused a moment to examine his bat and ball carefully. He spit on his hands and rubbed them together. He straightened his cap and said once more, “I’m the greatest hitter in the world!”
Again, he tossed the ball up in the air and swung at it. He missed. “Strike three!”
“Wow!” he exclaimed. “I’m the greatest pitcher in the world!”
Either way – he’s right.
Isn’t perspective a wonderful thing ?
