T-Ball, 10,000, and Expirement

This morning was the opening day ceremony for the T-ball/Softball/Baseball season at the World's Busiest Air Base. We were told to arrive a little early because it would be crowded. Crowded isn't the word!!

Here is P in her uniform. Nevermind the glove on her head:


There are 100 teams, and over 1200 kids, ages 5-15 playing this season. All players are affiliated with Uncle LeRoy in some way, so this is our version of Little League. Today's ceremony included a gathering of all the teams and a parade.

After the parade, P said she HAD to eat because she had no energy left for her 1200 game.


Here she is at her first at bat:


She did a good job hitting the ball, but chose to skip instead of running from base to base, and for one 'inning' while in the outfield, she spent time digging in the dirt.

At least she had fun.

The New No Name Car has hit a milestone. No, not it's first accident, that happened months ago. It has reached 10,000 miles:


Maybe it's not so new anymore.

One of my friends is taking a college level ethics course and asked me to assist in an experiment. She is writing a term paper based very loosely on the Good Samaritan Act. She asked that I do something in public and keep track of how people react.

This morning, I chose to wear my shirt inside out (I chose a shirt that would be VERY obvious, a Polo shirt, with 3 buttons and a collar) to the opening day ceremony, Burger King, and P's game. I kept mental note of how many people I spoke to or spoke to me.
I really don't know why no one mentioned it to me. I know they noticed my shirt wasn't quite right, witht he buttons on the INSIDE and all the seams showing.

If you saw someone in public (stranger or acquaintance) with their shirt obviously on the wrong side, would you say something to them? Me? I would tell them.
