Kids know manthey know

A group of children came around the corner of the convenience-store to see, mid-shot, my behind-the-back bank of a Tic Tac container off a brick wall into a garbage can from about 10-feet away; one of them said, "nice shot!"
Having not been witness to my earlier attempts from long range (two 20-foot set-shots that, at best, dinged the bottom of the can), I said, "are you kidding? I’m only connecting on 33% of my shots!"
The kid replied, with a smile beyond his years, "practice makes perfect."
You should’ve seen their faces after I went inside the convenience-store and came out with more Tic Tacs.
