Tennis Ball on His Day Off

It's the last day before a new tennis season begins. Our protagonist, a tennis ball, leaves a voicemail for his grandmother, a 10-pound bowling ball. The tennis ball goes about his day - watching youtube videos running errands, chatting with strangers, and drawing muscle cars. Over the course of a few minutes, we get a look into the mind of an everyday object who is slowing becoming aware of his own limits and impending uselessness.
