“Did you see that?” Joe said tohis friend Bill. “You’re a great shooter!”
“Bill，younever miss!” Joe said admiringly.
“Unless I’m in a real game,”Bill complained. “Then I miss all the time.”
Joe knew that Bill was right.Bill performed much better when he was having fun with Joe in the school yardthan he did when he was playing for the school team in front of a large crowd.

“You play well when I’mwatching,” Joe pointed out.
“That’s because I’ve known yousince we were five years old,” Bill said with a smile. “I’m just notcomfortable playing when other people are around.”
Joe nodded and understood, buthe also had an idea.

“Practice without me,” Joe saidto his friend.
“I'll be back in a minute.”
