Jake and Jackie Learn to Throw a Frisbee
By Beth Beutler
  

1     "You'd think everyone would automatically know how to do this," said Jackie as she looked at his new flying disc. "But I've never learned how to throw a Frisbee."
 
2     Jake was opening a box of three flying discs. The park up the street had recently installed a disc golf course, and Jake was intrigued. He and his dad had just gotten back from the sporting goods store where they had bought a set of discs. Jake stopped on the porch when he saw Jackie coming from up the street. His dad went in to get something to drink.
 
3     "I haven't thrown one a lot," admitted Jake. "But I'm hoping to learn how to throw one better so that I can go play on the new golf course."
 
4     Jackie looked at him quizzically. She wasn't sure about this new game.
 
5     Jake's dad came out with cold bottled water for each of them. "Do you want to learn how to throw these?" he asked.
 
6     "Yes," Jackie said, while Jake simply nodded.
 
7     "Okay, let's go out into the yard away from the house."
 
8     "What do you think, we're going to break a window?" Jake teased as he playfully punched his dad on the arm.
 
9     They went out to the far end of the yard. Jake's dad took one of the discs and held it in his right hand.
