Ask Yendor: Keeping The Z’s For Yourself


I have a question for you. I have never seen you, but I have heard about you, so I am sure you exist. You may have an answer to my problem.

I was jamming today and came upon a quandry. The jam with Arthur Coddington and Pat Marron was going well. We were passing the disc frequently and setting up a nice flow within the rhythm of the jam. Then Pat threw me a throw with the most unbelievable zzz’s where upon I flipped out!! I lost all sense of connection to the jam and lost all self control. I thought “I must keep these ZZZ’s to myself!! No one else can have these zzz’s!”

A list of all of the moves I could possibly do went through my head all at once. I did a very long combo. When I ran out of the zzz’s I kept brushing and rolling, kicking and rolling. If it were not for running out of grass and field I would have kept going for a lot longer. When I turned around, Arthur was taking a nap and Pat was making a cell phone call.

How can I control my selfish craving to keep all of the zzz’s to myself.

Or am I a lost cause? Am I a bad person?

Your humble jammer,
