He shrugged. Fell off my dresser and its been slowly making its way under the door. You know the upstairs sink has been clogged for a week. I’ve been brushing my teeth over the bathtub. So go fix the sink he says. Um. I dunno. He grinned and said well you can try. Ah. Yes. Ok.
And it worked. Went back to him and said well thank you. His dad has been busy, didn’t want to nag him. He’s been very busy with the violin, another concert. His smile got bigger and bigger.

He beat GTA 5 when he was 8. Shocking everyone when we looked up at his bank account. I was like oh shit. They sent us a complementary pyschological profile.

He says no way, he was just testing how long he could hang out over a military base in a stolen jet. After a certain time period you get shot down.
