Tomorrow my cousin’s son Nate turns 12. He’s a great, proper 21st century kid: he’s smart, loves comics, Star Wars, The Walking Dead, and wants to be a professional gamer (is that really a thing?). When I talked to him about what I do for a living, he decided after many years of burying his face in his Nintendo DS that I was in fact actually HELLA COOL.

She sent it with the caption “Best Birthday Present Ever”… totally making my day in the process.
Soooooo, liiiiiiike, #bestcousinever riiiiiiight…?
