The Long Walk to Irrelevance

September 19, 2021


In fourth grade, I beat Vance Campbell to win my age group
at the Wauseon Parks and Recreation Department’s ping-pong tournament.
My age group covered fourth through seventh grade,
and Vance was in seventh grade.
So . . . yeah.
I mean, if you wanted to say David beats Goliath,
I wouldn’t object.
A few days later, a photo of me standing beside
hulking seventh-grade, second-place Vance
was printed in the Fulton County Expositor, our local newspaper.
So again, yeah.
