Alley-Oops

Rachel Stein

Shimmy’s heart raced with excitement as he read the flyer in the school newsletter. Calling all boys to join our school-wide Bowl-a-Thon. All proceeds will benefit our yeshivah.

That’s right up my alley, Shimmy exulted. I’m a terrific bowler. Pretty neat, too, that they’re going to set up a bowling alley in the gym. Come to think of it, the shiny wood floors look perfect for bowling. Taking an imaginary ball, Shimmy swung his arm back and tossed it down an alley. “Strike!” he yelled out loud, jumping high in the air as he pictured all the pins crashing down, one on top of another, in delicious success. I can’t wait till that show-off Shuey Birnbaum, sees how many strikes and spares I’ll get; he’ll eat his hat.
