One of my sons — I had to swear I wouldn’t tell you which — got 8th place in summer bowling! Out of how many teams? Well, I don’t want to put too fine a point on it, but it was a single digit number. Naturally he got a trophy!
P.S. For the record, the 9th place winner (can we possibly call him the, er, loser?) gets a “Horse’s A**” trophy, which my son says he was aiming for. Because THAT, at least, would have been pretty cool.
