The Noble Art

by bryanthomas

"Mum, can I join that new boxing club on Sycamore Avenue?" "I don't want you going into that area, it's really rough around there, particularly at night."

"But it would be good for me." "Ha! Good for you! Matthew, boxing is for hooligans."

"But boxing is a noble art." "Noble art! Pfft. I've never heard such nonsense. Noble art my elbow." "Boxing teaches you discipline and respect for your opponent, Mum."

"Discipline and respect for your opponent, you say?" "Yep."

"Maybe you could give it a try, I suppose." "Great! Now I'll be able to smash Tommy Hunter's face in."

@bryanthomas In the summer of my sixth year. My granny had a neighbor who was a former boxer with full blown traumatic encephalopathy. He got tire of seeing me beaten up by neighbor hood bullies. He taught me to box and street fight that summer. Fists became my universal offering to all the bullies that I encountered until I went to college.

@bernardtwindwil LOL! Nope, but when Tommy's old enough he'll be on Trump's team! :o)

Did Tommy vote for Trump?
