I’m just Not Feeling It

The coach called Lewkowski over to the sideline. “What’s going on with you, son?” the coach asked. “Bradley handed you the ball and you immediately fumbled it. Then he threw you a pass that should have been an easy catch, but you dropped it. We’ve only got ten minutes left in the game to come from behind and pull off a victory. But you need to stick with the method we’ve been practicing all season that got us to the playoffs.”

“Coach,” Lewkowski said, “I’m sorry but I’m just not feeling the synergy on the field right now. You need to have faith in me and give me the freedom to do my thing.”

The coach turned bright red with anger. “You’re right, Lewkowski,” he said. “I want you to feel the synergy between your butt and that bench. And as to freedom to do your thing, feel free to sit your fat ass down for the rest of the game.”

    Just had to have a similar talk with one of my college student helpers…it’s not about art it’s about getting the D#@NET# show out!
