I don't need to stretch


A father talks to a stranger about parenthood. He reflects on his loss of clout as his son ages. “I used to say jump and he’d say how high. Now I tell him to stretch so he doesn’t rip a hammy and sit out half his senior season look what happens…” He tees himself up for failure to entertain his new friend. “Hey bud.” The kid takes his headphones off. “Better stretch when we get there, yeah?” Like clockwork, he responds: “I don’t need to stretch.”
