My dad and I had a great time that day. We ate hotdogs, we drank soda, we watched the game and we talked about it all the way home. Every time I look at my commemorative baseball I see the bright yellow threads that hold together both sides of the baseball.

But the family’s forever lasting fukú began with Abelard and the “bad thing he said about Trujillo” (p. 211). Had Abelard not fucked around with Trujillo, and had he pleased the Failed Cattle Chief’s latest sexual capricho with his daughter Jacquelyn, then the Cabral-De Leon family wouldn’t have had such an unfortunate ending. After Abelard refused to comply with the orders, he was charged with “Slander and calumny

Research paper My science fair project is comparing whether a heavier baseball bat will hit the baseball farther because its heavier, or whether a lighter baseball bat will hit the ball farther because its lighter and you can swing the bat harder. My hypothesis is that the heavier bat will hit the ball farther because the kinetic energy will be higher because the bat is heavier so it will swing faster by itself pulling its own weight. I had limitations on my project because its hard to control how hard you hit the baseball every time because of the bats weight and force. My science fair was really fun because I love to play baseball and it is my favorite sport. I did my science fair to see which bat would hit it farther because I
