Baseball might be my new sport

When I was in grade school, I was the pitcher for t-ball. Yes, I was that kid.

When in college, our softball team never won a game. Jeff might have cared, but I never noticed.

102 years later, my ball-hitting career has, um, …

While at Mistral Kitchen in Seattle tonight, the owner and a few others (specifically, it was myself, my friend Tanarin, a woman from Washington DC, 2 people from the kitchen and the bartender) decided to practice batting with some fruit. Actually, it was the owner who suggested we hit some lemons and limes, so I take no responsibility, other than that of an entertained batter.

Never one to skip out on bashing some fruit, I said “let’s go” and we proceeded to spray ourselves with citrus. Yes, if you hit a lemon with a softball bat, it sprays all over you. Thankfully, I like smelling like lemons. Tanarin captured these shots of me as I covered Westlake Ave. with the sweet smell of lemon.







By the way, this looks the same as my golf swing, but it doesn’t smell like grass when I swing.

    Should have been wearing your new attachable camera. I can’t see the “ball”! Dad

    Get that back elbow up or you will pop everything up or swing under the lemon.

    One of the many things I love about you Brian… is you allow yourself to be a big kid and are committed to a great time :) Thanks for reaching out and inviting me to play in your sandbox! Tanarin
