Sitting at my eldest daughter’s softball game, my younger daughter was happily munching on Sunflower Seeds. She sat there with cheeks that mimicked a squirrel with a full mouth of nuts, cheeks puffed out and chewing ever so slowly. All of the sudden, she spat with the full sound of a “raspberry” and seed husks flew through the air. Thankfully, we were sitting in the front row and the seed particles landed safely on the grass. Horrified and somewhat amused, I said “Spit Politely!!” Never have I uttered such irony but relief was given as the chuckles of other mothers filtered through the air.
