We went to the park the other day and my friend took me to the game. When she told me what we were doing, I thought it was going to be us playing. But instead, we ended up watching a bunch of other peoples play.
I wanted to play, I’m sure my friend wanted to play, but we couldn’t play with the people apparently. Something about the rules. Always about the rules. Yeah sure, some rules need to be, like no biting and , but when they stop you from playing, that gets boring really fast.
So I checked out the rules to see if we could and it was just some mistake that we couldn’t. It seemed pretty simple to me, I just watched and learned. And sniffed around at some of the foodstuffs that were lingering in the air.
This game took a lot of peoples to play, I don’t know if you need that many or that’s just how many decided to join in the action. It wasn’t all crazy though, like every dog for himself. They had the strategy here, like everyone was waiting in a special place to do a thing. That part seemed like it would get boring.
Since they wouldn’t let me be on a team, I thought it was going to be difficult or something. But all they do is run around the park and chase the ball. I do that regularly. Seems like the perfect game for someone like me.
And swing the stick around, but no one else seems to want the stick. Maybe it’s trickery, like, I have a cool stick, give me the ball and I’ll give you the stick. And when they throw them the ball, they throw the stick away and start running out into the park. But here’s the thing…no one is chasing them. They just want the ball. So the guy just runs around until they find the ball and do it all over again.
Well, I want the ball too. And it seems like I’m pretty good at all the things they’re doing, except for the waiting and not chasing stuff. So why can’t I participate?
Then it dawned on me. My pal pointed at something very peculiar that I hadn’t noticed before. I need to wear the socks if I’m going to play on a team. And I came to the conclusion that it’s not really that fun after all. I’m not wearing the socks. I don’t know how anyone managed to talk them into wearing the socks, but they did.
We were entertained there for a while longer before my friend also grew bored and decided we should have some fun. So we played with the ball together, just me and my pal. And I didn’t have to put on socks or anything like that.
