We slowed down, slowed down kind of slowly, like Bernie wasn’t sure about slowing down. But then he pulled over and parked by the backstop. He reached under his seat, felt around, and pulled out a tennis ball. Not just any tennis ball, of course, but one of mine. All the tennis balls found in the Porsche, or at our place on Mesquite Road, inside or out, including all the other houses in all directions, are mine. As well as all other tennis balls I see first, plus ones I see second and possibly even later. In short, tennis balls are mine. But I’m always happy to share. Or at least I’ll do it. Especially if a treat is involved. Maybe only if a treat’s involved. And not for long. Got to be true to yourself – you hear that all the time.

(from Heart of Barkness, the new Chet and Bernie novel.)
