Puer Play

'Believe me, Titan, no one gives a crap here at Kinsley. That was 50 years ago anyway" retorted Rich 'dozin' docent' Gerchak to the 'blustering bullshitter.' 100% on the Geometry and Latin regents exams in 1962 doesn't mean you hit the ball with the proper angles or know how to apply English to your spin serves in 2012. Translate this in your 'jocular journal:' Your legs are as dead as that language.The proof is in today's results."  Tennistitan and his Manhattan Prep classmate went toe to toe after their session as partners (6-3, 1-6) and the 'testy tortoise' was lauching an ad hominum attack against the 'gangly grouch.'  "We handled 'Slats' Frank Slattery and 'Big Al' Diodati with ease in that first set, 'bombastic blowhard,' and now you want to take it out on me because 'Rockin' Rick Ricci ate our lunch when he paired with the 'coddling counselor.' "I don't seem to remember you coughing up the homework assignments in those subjects very readily back in the day. So why should I do your running on the tennis court now, wise acre. Et tu Brute! Got it? Jovial Jupiter" TennisTitan was last heard mumbling to his dog 'mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa' as he exited the court.
