I was at work today, and this little boy came through my line with his father. If I had to guess, I'd say he was maybe 4. They purchased a few bottles of Gatorade. "The red one is for me!" he exclaimed, and I told him red was my favorite, too. Another boy walked by with his mother; he was older, maybe 7 or 8 years old. He spotted a teenager with a mohawk standing behind Gatorade boy and proceeded to point and shout "WHOA! He's cool!" My little buddy's eyes lit up as he tugged on his dad's sleeve. "DAD! He said I was cool!" The dad asked what he was talking about, and he replied "A boy walked by! And he said I was cool! He really did! He said it! Wow!"

My heart broke. It was the cutest thing I have ever witnessed. I wish you could have heard his voice- he was just so overcome with awe and excitement.

For the record, Gatorade cutie was at least a million times cooler than Mohawk boy.
Just saying.
