I asked one of my guys, who was really good, this same question. And he told me that as a kid he had a morning paper route that had to be done in time before he went to school. Besides, a girl that caught his eye, while in 6th grade, lived in one of the houses that he delivered to, and. once a week he’d stop by her house to collect his money. He told me that while riding his bike his aim got pretty darn good. In fact, he said that he could put just a little spin on the paper so it hit the front porch of any house, the paper would then flip and land standing up against the front door. I was kind of skeptical until one afternoon he brought in a newspaper and to my surprise he did it! He flipped a newspaper down our hall and it landed standing up right against a fire door.
My curiosity then had me asking… “how’d go with the girl?” He said they ended up going to the same high school. She became a cheerleader, dated the quarterback of the football team. It must have been tough with the morning paper route, delivering to her house. He told me that it wasn’t so bad. He developed a pretty good arm thereafter every morning with the morning edition - in the eve troughs, in between the front steps and the lilac bushes, and his best shot… bonk, off her bedroom window at 4am.
