when i was many years younger, i was sitting on the couch throwing up and catching an inflatable ball (about the size of a volleyball), and it bounced off my hand and landed just out of my reach. i was comfortable and didn't want to get up, so i just left it there. then a few minutes later sam came and sat next to it. i started coaxing her to push the ball to me, and my brother was laughing at me. but then, she pushed it just into my reach! that'll teach my brother to laugh at me.
