Ways that 9 year-old son, Aaron, psyches up for big baseball games:

* Wear different colored socks (red and black) and pull baseball pants up to knees to show off the colors.

* Rub Bed Head coconut smelling hair creme into buzz cut to make ends spikey even though he will wear a baseball cap or batting helmet the entire game.

* Go number two.

* Listen to Lee Greenwood’s version of “The Star Spangled Banner” as many times as he can until his sister yells at him to turn it off.

  1. I’m chuckling at item #3. A good number two goes beyond mere psyching up and is the preferred coping strategy of most software developers I know. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Mindy,

    Thank you for that observation! You may be right, and it may be a start to a new novel, but when you said that, I immediately got inspired to incorporate it somehow into my current novel. I’ve been stalled on my current novel for a few weeks now, but reading your words gives me new life.

    Ya think it’s time for me to bring something to our writing group? ๐Ÿ˜‰
