Standing at the fence

John at Baseball Fence

During a recent visit, while my husband stood at the fence watching our oldest grandson at baseball practice,

I spent my time in high level negotiations with this one.


(As he leaned against my leg),  he asked the following:

“Can we go to Burger Fresh?”

Me:  Yes

”Can we get bacon on our burger?”

Me:  Yes.

”Can we get ice cream?”

Me:  Yes.

”Can we go while Harrison is practicing?”

Me:  No.

”It’s cold.”

Me:  I know.

”Can I go play on that other baseball field?”

Me: I can’t see you if you play there.

”Why do you need to see me?”

Me:  I just do.

Then he found his next mark.

A common phrase used to describe people who put off making a choice is "sitting on the fence," which refers to someone who is undecided about whether to jump in one direction or another. It normally carries a negative connotation since leaders are frequently rewarded and encouraged to make audacious, decisive decisions. In essence, the barrier was placed there for a reason—to address an issue that existed at the time. Without knowing why the fence was put there in the first place, removing it is likely to make the problem recur.
