    So many potential contexts where it would perfectly apply. A WWI memoir. A Kafkaesque novel. If I were presented with it de novo in a game where you had to invent a piece of literature it came from, I’m not sure baseball is a context I’d think of to place it in.

    Also: it’s a great possibility for a story prompt, one of which hasn’t appeared here for a while. I guess if something were published using it, it’d have to be an epigraph rather than a line in the story, but that’s okay right?Report
