little boys making fun of my niece for being the only girl and the only lefty in tee ball is not okay, but those little boy’s father’s laughing about how she probably won’t be any good “because she’s a little girl” made me more angry than anything else did. and yeah okay maybe it’s just tee ball for grade schoolers, but do you know who hit that ball farther than any other kid on that team tonight?? my niece, my fiery, strong, beautiful, talented little niece smashed that ball farther than any of those rude boys. and the look of pride on her face when she shut up those little boys (and their dads!) with one crack of the bat made me the proudest human to ever exist on this planet.
What if a Hale-wolf lives after the fire on the street, perhaps with a human who is homeless. And because of these circumstances he looks more like a sick thin dog than a wolf.
