Misunderstanding

bowling

Friday afternoon, and my class walked up to the field for a Cricket Coaching session. The coach was teaching them to catch, he explained the importance of holding hands close together when catching [so the ball doesn't slip through] and pulling the ball into your body.

Then we did underarm and overarm throwing. Then he sat them on the grass and did a Q&A session about what had been taught.

"And what happens when we put our hands together?"

and at least two little voices responded, without a trace of irony

"We close our eyes, Coach"

I muttered to the child next to me "I think he is talking about playing not praying!"

children pray
