I believe in happily ever after, but it doesn’t happen without a lot of sweat and tears – and a continuous commitment to the partnership. Anyone who thinks otherwise would be naively mistaken.
A girl growing up in a neighborhood of boys has little choice: Either join ’em or fight ’em. So I joined them and played their games – mostly sports. I knew little, but they taught me much: how to field a grounder, throw a fast pitch, hit free throws, chip and putt, hit a backhand volley and the importance of a ‘ball hat’.
