Today is my nephew's 9th birthday. I took the day off so I can be at his house when he gets home from school. I am very excited about seeing him with his gifts -- these remote-controlled "Karts." Mario and Yoshi are each about a foot tall, so you can imagine the size of the box. He's still at the age where he's wowed by the size of the gift, as well as the contents, so I think he'll be very excited.
He's a new Cub fan, though, so I must suck it up and put on a happier face for when we talk about last night's game. We must keep the faith!
