Watching A Nice Person Sign Autographs

I stood in the lobby at my post and watched a woman sign autographs. She was pleasant, patient, and beautiful. Her perfect posture was such that I became aware of my slacking self and straightened up.

The autograph seekers were softball coaches and she was Chicago Bandits pitcher Amanda Freed. She was speaking at a coaches clinic and sharing tips and advice. I don't know softball but I'm always impressed by athletes and their abilities. More than that, I was impressed by Amanda Freed's kind and engaging demeanor. I'll be very pleased if my daughters grow up to be as talented and friendly.

On a related note, enjoy this article from Neuroanthropology entitled "Throwing Like A Girl('s Brain)."
