I can't play basket ball.

First I just want to let you all know that I am having the time of my life with my beautiful Jenn. She makes me feel so alive and every day is a adventure with her. She is so beautiful and I am the luckiest man alive to have her.

Today while Jenn was in class I decided I would try my hand at basketball. I had never really played it before apart from on a games console so I figured that now was the time to try it out. I took Jenn to class and headed for the store to get a basketball. I managed to pick one up for just a dollar and it was a official size and weight one. The reason it was a dollar is that it was deflated and had no box so I got the basket ball and a pump for just 5 dollars what a deal.

I took the ball to a near by basket ball court and pumped it up. now I can dribble with some skill thats not a problem, I can run with the ball I can jump with it, I can throw it but I can not for the life of me score a hoop, I did a small game where I took 20 shots and I managed to score 6 out of those 20 shots, the rest hit the hoop and bounced away and I had to chase it or I missed all together, in short I suck at basket ball

While I was playing two small children were at the other side of the court using the other hoop. after a short while they got called back by their mother and they walked away, a few minutes later I notice the kids and their mother all laid on the road near the edge, I go over and ask if everything was ok. The mother told me how they had just lost their ball down a small drain and they couldn't get it out. I tried to reach it but couldn't get the ball either.

I looked up at the kids, they looked a little sad, I said to them, "I have a Idea, why don't I just let you have this ball, I have to go to England in a few days and I am no good at basket ball anyway so I think you would find more use out of it". They took the ball and said thank you. I think that can be my good deed for the day.

I am glad that I could make them happy again.
