Cool Kid in the Neighborhood
I suppose I never need to worry about Brennan being overzealous to be "cool". As he's outgrown his bike of the previous couple years, I searched Craigslist and found someone selling 2 motorcycle-style bikes for basically the price of one (used one). So of course we jumped on it. As soon as Brian had one reassembled and ready to roll, Brennan excitedly took it out for a spin. Several minutes later he returned, first smiling, as he recounted how immediately a bunch of friends swarmed him exclaiming how cool his bike was. But then, he started crying as he went on to tell us that they all kept begging him to ride it and following him around to the point he couldn't shake them. Ha ha. The novelty will wear off for all involved soon enough, but Brian and I had to smile about his distressing popularity.
