He loves the skateboard. We where out tonight, far too late. He bought a birthday present to him self as well today, the cap. Just when he where about to pay it he noticed it had a text on the back “Otto”, so he knew he’d choosen the right one. Normally he has a helmet on, not tonight. He even got a super sugary Slash Ice afterwards. His mother is not the responsible type.
