- Baseball gave him his earliest challenge. He was an outstanding pitcher in Little League,
and eventually, as a senior in high school, made the [ wow powerleveling]
varsity, winning half the team‘s games with a record of five wins and two losses. At graduation,
the coach named Daniel the [ wow power level] team‘s most valuable
+ deleted
-   His finest hour, though, came at a school science fair. He entered an exhibit showing
how the [ wow power leveling] circulatory system works. It was
primitive and crude, especially compared to the fancy, computerized, blinking-light models
entered by other [ wow power level] students. My wife, Sara, felt
embarrassed for him. 
-   It turned out that the other kids [ wow power leveling]
had not done their own work-their parents had made their exhibits. As the judges went on their
rounds, they found that these other kids couldn‘t answer their questions. Daniel answered
every one. When the judges awarded the [
lotro power leveling] Albert Einstein Plaque for the best exhibit, they gave it to him. 
-   By the time Daniel left for [ lotro
power leveling] he stood six feet tall and weighed 170 pounds. He was muscular and in superb
[ wow powerleveling] condition, but he never pitched another inning,
having given up baseball for English literature. I was sorry that he would not develop his
athletic talent, but proud that he had made such a mature decision. 
-   One day I told Daniel that the great failing in my [ wow
power leveling] life had been that I didn‘t take a year or two off to travel when I finished
college. This is the best way, to my way of thinking, to broaden oneself and develop a larger
perspective on life. Once I had married and begun working, I found that the dream of [
lotro power leveling] in another culture had vanished. 
-   Daniel thought about this. His friends said that he would be insane to put his career
on [ wow powerleveling]. But he decided it wasn‘t so crazy.
After graduation, he worked as a waiter at college, a bike messenger and a house painter.
With the money he earned, he had enough to go to [ wow power level]
-   The [ lotro power leveling] before
he was to leave, I tossed in bed. I was trying to figure out something to say. Nothing came
to mind. Maybe, I thought [ wow power leveling], it wasn‘t necessary
to say anything. 
-   What does it matter in the course of a [ wow power level]
if a father never tells a son what he really thinks of him? But as I stood before Daniel,
I knew that it does matter. My father and I loved each other. Yet, I always regretted never
hearing him put his feelings into words and never having the memory of that moment. Now, I
could feel my palms sweat and my throat tighten. Why is it so hard to tell a son something
from the heart? My mouth turned dry, and I knew I would be able to get out only a few [
lotro power leveling] words clearly. 
-   “Daniel," I said, "if I could have picked [ wow powerleveling],
I would have picked you." 
-   That‘s all I could say. I wasn‘t sure he understood what I meant. Then he came
toward me and threw his arms around me. For a moment, the [ wow
power leveling] world and all its people vanished, and there was just Daniel and me in our
home by the sea. 
-   He was saying [ wow powerleveling], but my eyes misted
over, and I couldn‘t understand what he was saying. All I was aware of was the stubble on
his chin as his face pressed against mine. And then, the [
lotro powerleveling]. I went to [ wow power level] work, and Daniel
left a few hours later with his girlfriend. 
-   That was seven weeks ago, and I think about [
lotro powerleveling] when I walk along the beach on weekends. Thousands of miles away, somewhere
out past the ocean waves breaking on the [
lotro power level]
-  deserted shore, he might be scurrying across Boulevard Saint Germain, strolling through
a musty hallway of the Louvre, bending an elbow in a Left Bank café. 
-   What I had said to Daniel was clumsy and trite. It was [
wow power level]. And yet, it was everything.
