Would You Like To Be A Star


With a little effort I wonder if I could do that. Basketball. My mom played in high school. At 5’4”, well, 5’3 & ¾” she was a star. I’m taller, 5’4 & ¼” would I do better… by ½ inch? Hmm. I watch the toddlers and preschoolers run around the gym and they ask “Miss Margaret can you make a basket?” I step back and give it a shot. In! Should I go a second time? In! I wonder…


Is there Olympic basketball? Maybe. Don’t know. Can’t stand to watch it. Too dull kind of like golf. There’s a sleeper.

  1. Hi Mya!
    Great to see you here’ this. I love the use of the numbers & half a inch will be very special and make the difference. I’m intrigued by your last lines especially the sleeper.
    Hope to see you again!
