The Super Duper Super Ball


To My Brother –


On Christmas Eve, more than 30 years ago,
you slept on the floor of my bedroom. We
stayed up late sharing Christmas secrets.

I told you that you were getting a gigantic
superball that could bounce 50 feet in the
sky.

The next morning, you opened all of your
presents and you were a little bit dis-
appointed that you didn’t really get the

Super Duper Super Ball.
But I didn’t lie. You just didn’t get it THAT
year. May all your Christmas dreams come
true – if not this year, then eventually!
Love,
Your Sister

i popped a ceiling tile out of place at walmart with one of those two weeks ago. berek didn't believe i had done it because hello! that ball couldn't really bounce THAT high. we quickly switched aisles when the second tile was popped out. :(

it does bounce that high and is totally worth a 30 year wait.
