Hey! Aren't you that baseball player that I keep seeing on the news? Why you always look depressed man?
Hey... yes, I am that guy. I don't know what's been going on with me. I'm sure I'll get back on track though. Are you a fan?
Nah, I could care less about baseball. I'm Harrison. What's your name?
I'm Julio. So what's up with you? What do you care about?
I care about the issues going on in the world today. I'm very involved with politics and society.
Really? I've never been too involved with things like that. It's always been baseball, baseball, and baseball. Tell me about something going on in today's society. I feel like I need to catch up with the rest of the world.
Well, there are a significant number of people in society that are still against the idea of gay marriage. Gay marriage has already been legalized but people are still debating on whether it should be allowed or accepted.
Yeah, I just don't understand why people are against it if it doesn't apply to them. Let the gay couples be. If being with someone of the same gender makes the couple happy, then what's the problem?
That reminds me of me and my baseball career. Baseball used to make me happy, but now that I'm getting older, I don't like it as much anymore and I have been thinking about retiring.
Oh man. I'm sorry about that. I know I'm just a teenager, but here's some advice: Don't let others dictate what you should do. Follow through with what YOU want to do.
My wife keeps telling me that retiring is a bad decision. I tell her that it doesn't involve her opinion since it's not her career she's talking about, but she won't listen.
