MEET THE DRIBBLER ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


Ladies and Gentlemen, meet the Dribbler, a Neighborhood Newcomer with a most annoying habit. Every morning at 7:30, he walks up and down the length of 7th Street bouncing a basketball, leaving a perpetual 'boing, boing, boing' in his wake. The sound has a tendency to echo off nearby homes and worm its way into your consciousness like some kind of audible Chinese Water Torture. "That's it," I said as he walked by Starbucks this morning, "I've had it ... This Kobe Tyrant must be stopped!" I followed him to his lair which, not surprisingly, turned out to be Goose Egg Park and watched from a safe distance as he hid his basketball in a tree. Then, like so many before him, he assumed the posture of a Ninja Master and began practicing a series of Goofball Maneuvers. Mark my words, one of these days when he least expects it, that Basketball is going to disappear ...!

The sound of a dribbling basketball is actually sort of normal and comforting to me. :) But then every other house here has a basketball hoop (as does ours)!

Perhaps I should start dribbling on the deck around the house in the morning, to give Beth soothing sounds :o)
