See that window up there on the left? That’s the bedroom I shared with my sister.
Every day after school, we’d stop to watch boxers duking it out before we reluctantly trudged upstairs to do homework. I was always fascinated by the boxers’ fancy-stepped dancing—the weaving in and out that almost always saved them from the “hit.”
But, my sister loved the fight. She’d watch, studying wide-eyed and unblinking as a gloved-hand slammed into a scrunched-up face. Sometimes, her hand mimicked the boxer’s, swaying through the air, ready to duke it out.
Guess who had fewer black eyes?
