    I'm looking forward to a simple sentence or two about what you had for dinner, Tufguy.
    I am not a teacher.

    It's very unusual but not impossible.
    Google bowling between legs.

    Re: throws the ball between his legs towards

    I found a video of a guy actually bowling between his legs. But I don't know how to post a link to it using this mobile device, so I shared it on Facebook. There are also images of people using two-handed, behind the back throws.

    Yes, this is what I was talking about. It happens in real life. Could you please tell me the correct way to say it?

    Re: throws the ball between his legs towards

    Like the parkour video, I'd have trouble explaining this to someone without either demonstrating it with my own body or showing the person the video. Is explaining such a video really something you have to do on a day-to-day basis?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
