Day-Making Moment #215:

Today, we played English Baseball, a variant on the game where, instead of hitting the ball, the batter and pitcher race to correctly and quickly answer a question posed in English by the teacher. It was the top of the second inning, but it was clearly the last pitch, seeing as we had a minute left in class. The two boys at bat were gripping their desks, totally focused. Tension sang in the air--all students were silent, watching, waiting.

I asked the question. "What...is your favorite........food?"

And the boy up to pitch screamed, at the top of his lungs, "I LIKE--"

...and froze, eyes wide. Clearly he hadn't thought that far, and the room froze with him, all breaths bated, even his opponent arrested by the sheer volume of the first half of his statement. Tight anticipation hung over the classroom for a moment that stretched almost to breaking, and then, the pitcher rallied himself and bellowed:

"--CHEEEEEEEEEEEESE!"

There was a beat of silence. And then the entire classroom, Mr. Onodera, me, even the pitcher himself, dissolved into hysterical, helpless laughter. And the bell rang.
