Sunday was Riis’ birthday. I got him a Like-a-Bike. I had it in the basement workshop for about a month just waiting for the free-time to pimp it out for him. It never happened. That is definitely the failure part of things. The success part is that he loves the bike and rides it and tuns it around the house wearing the ‘Baby en Fuego’ helmet (a black Giro helmet with red flames on it). Sure, he loved all the presents and all the attention, but the bike was definitely the winner – Success. Also, the fact that so far I have been able to turn him into a bike nut like me (not that it took any actual effort) I also consider a success. 

The fact that when asked whether he liked bikes or balls more he said balls, well, I’m still not sure what to do with that…
