I can’t explain it – I simply fell in love with this kid. Generally kids make me uneasy for I fear I will break them, or devastate them with the truth about Santa, or worse yet they might expect me to be a responsible adult. I was swarmed by kids as I traveled through Africa and I promise you, they filled up my heart. But then this guy stole it. Rather than chasing me down, full of giggles, dances and requests to hold hands or snap a photo, this badass simply rode by me with a cooler than the Fonz look.
