As Opposed to “Slow Legs?”


Once again, from the People Really Should Know files (cue “Your Mother Should Know” by the Beatles):

Yesterday, as I umpired a softball game, one of the players sprinted to first base and beat the throw for a single, obviously pleasing her coach.

He shouted, “You see what happens when you use your fast legs?”

I knew what he meant: When you use your speed, good things happen.

But I couldn’t resist. I muttered, “As opposed to slow legs?”

The catcher heard me and giggled.

Until next time! Use the right words!
