Who’s On First: A Conversation With Luke

(Not what you think from the title.) We must now turn in our baseball fan membership cards; we are clearly failures as parents. Luke was playing a baseball game on DH’s phone, when….

  • Luke: Daddy, I made first plate!
  • DH: Do you mean first place? Did you win?
  • Luke: No, first plate. I ran!
  • DH: Oh, first base; you hit the ball and went one base.
  • Luke [exasperated]: No! I scored the first point at first plate.
  • DH [dejected]: Home plate. You scored the first *run* at *home* plate.
  • Luke: Yeah, that’s what I said.
