Ron has curly hair, little feet, and wants to play kickball. Terrence, Deedee, and Jason tell him he can't.
So Ron goes to Louis for help. Louis tells the other kids they can't have the ball unless they share, and offers to play on Ron's team, prompting a wave of smack talk from the other three kids.
They start the game. Unfortunately Ron is a terrible kickball player, though, and can only kick the ball a few feet. But Louis kicks a home run every time. Even with Louis' help, Ron and Louis lose the game twenty-six to two. But all is not lost because "Ron had a wonderful time" (21.39).
Ron wants to play again the next day, and Louis agrees; they lose even more spectacularly than in the first game.
When recess is over, Louis cuts to the chase: "Why do you always want to play kickball?" he asks Ron. "You can't kick. You can't field. You can't even run to first base" (21.48).
Ron fires back: "Don't go blaming it all on me. You're half the team too, you know" (21.49).
And then he punches Louis in the stomach—and he happens to be perfectly good at punching.
