How surprised would you have been last January if I told you Melky Cabrera would be tied for the team lead in homeruns? Seriously, on a scale from 1 - 10 in surprise factor, how surprised would you be? For me, I'd be about an 8. I figured he would hit more homeruns this year, but he hit 7 all last season, so more could have meant 10. I don't tend to surprise easy, but Melky has just been on a tear. So how surprised are you?
For me, a 1 on the surprise scale would be like the time I showed up for a surprise birthday party and saw all my friends cars parked outside. A great effort, but very little surprise. A 5 would be like the time I saw Andre 3000 standing outside of a hotel in New York city. It wasn't too surprising since it was in New York, but still a little surprising. A 10 would be like the time I was robbed at a friendly dice game. I'm placing my bet when all of a sudden I get sucker punched. I looked up and who should I see but Miley Cyrus. I said "Hannah, why?" And she said, "Money earned ain't as sweet as money taken.", and then walked away with all of our dice money. That kind of caught me off guard. So a 10 would be having Hannah Montana rob your dice game, and a 1 would be the non-surprise birthday party. So, how surprised are you?
