Short Cherry Rant
By ice rivers
I'm only hitting about .160 on the cherry meter. If I were that far under the Mendoza line in the show, I'd be headed for Double A.
If I were lofting three pointers in the NBA at a success rate of 16%, I'd be riding some serious pine and waiting for my ticket to the G league or China.
I wouldn't be Ray Allen, that's for sure.
Ray Allen was the greatest three point shooter of his era. Still he missed more than he hit. Someone asked Ray how many he expected to hit as he was launching them. Ray, without hesitation, said "100%"
That's the way I feel about every post I make here at ABCtales. If I didn't think it would score, I wouldn't have posted it.
Nowadays, I'm surprised when I get a cherry award. It's a great feeling not gonna lie but I must admit, I don't usually see much difference between what gets rewarded and what gets passed by. In this regard, I'm like the Alzheimer sufferer who is surprised every day.
Still, I'm gonna keep shooting. I have my group of faithful readers. So what if I'm writing the most important story of my life and nobody's showing up. If I write it well, they will come.
