“I think I’m going to take up juggling, Schweetie!” said Mark.
Sally gave him a sideways glance. “Juggling?” she asked.
“Yes,” replied Mark as he grabbed three balled up pairs of socks from his sock drawer in their dresser. “All of the really cool celebrities can juggle. Let’s see, there is Justin Bieber, Tom Hanks, Patrick Dempsey, Neil Patrick Harris, Michelle Obama, and Cary Grant, to name a few. I think I will be rather good at it.”
“What makes you so sure?” asked Sally.
“Well, I am able to binge watch all of Clint Eastwood’s movies, recite from memory every Beatles’ #1 hit, swallow three - yes three – medium sized pills at one time (4 out of 5 doctors marvel at my ability to do that), drive a stick shift, and recite from memory in abc order all of the colors in your neon block crew socks from SammySocks Etc.: blue, green, orange, purple, and red.”
“Wow!” said Sally with tears of admiration in her eyes. “Maybe you can juggle.”
