  5. …. in farm country that looked like heaven, there was a young, handsome boy who loved baseball. He was a southpaw who threw like a rocket. And, once upon a time, long ago, young Roy Hobbs carved a baseball bat out of special wood. He called it “wonderboy”.

  6. What about the women that are extra-ordinary, like you and me? We did our own thing, and that wasn’t bad either and we met on the way on a cloud. Yes, we are the first princesses that travelled by cloud.
