“Getting to Third Base”

Published: Thursday, March 21, 2013 at 09:17 AM.

The letter sounded boring, but it wasn’t. It got much, much better. As I continued to read, it was apparent that Mama’s little sister was doing better than “just fine.”

She had been “getting to third base,” and let me tell you what; third base was good.

Before we get to third base, I should note that my aunt at 10 years old was doing about average in school, but average was better than her fellow students. Does that sound familiar?

She made a 76 on her arithmetic test, but it was “better than a lot of others.” She only missed two questions on her science test, giving her an 88 on her 6-weeks test.

Now, moving on to third base…

Mama's little sister wrote,

“I still play baseball. Forest made the most home runs for the boys. He will get to choose Monday.”
