Since I was a toddler,

Since I was a toddler, my father and I have played basketball together - with a hoop that clipped onto a door, my father on his knees. For my sixth grade birthday present, he bought me an adjustable rim for the driveway. (I was the first kid on the block with an adjustable rim.) That year, we made a pact that for my graduation, we would play one-on-one, and he wouldn't go easy on me at all - playing, as he called it "for all the banoogies".

Well, this afternoon the event took place. I won, 21-5. It was another loose end left from childhood, wrapped up before I'm on my own.
