Tomorrow college boy will turn 21. I think it is safe to reveal a secret from his 3rd birthday. We wanted to buy him his first 2 wheeler bike, but could not find one we could afford. We even considered selling his sister’s old bike that she had outgrown.
Then, in desperation, I took his sister’s bike and hid it in the basement. After he went to bed each night, I would paint a pink area blue. He got his new blue bike, but as you can tell by the picture, it was not his favorite gift.
His favorite was a toy guitar that played rock music. That trend continues as he spends more money on his instruments: drums and two guitars, than he does on transportation.
Even then he was a ladies man as all of his guests were girls!
