"But, Mommy, puh-lease, puh-lease! I HAVE to go outside!"
"Justin, how can I be sure that you'll make wise decisions and be safe?"
"Don't worry, Mommy, I'll be with him," Carsten assured me.
They've been a pair ever since the day Carsten was born.
And they were opposites from the beginning. Justin loved his first trip to the beach.
Carsten- not so much...
Justin was an imp even as a crawler.
Carsten just hung out.
And Justin's been getting Carsten into scrapes for a long time.
Carsten, however, is not very easily persuaded. Like the time a couple of weeks ago when Justin wanted to "trade" Carsten for a toy by promising to let him play with a new toy- in two months...if he gets it for his birthday.
"Carsten, if you let me play with your Lord of the Rings game, I'll let you play with my new Star Wars Legos at my birthday."
"But the Star Wars set is really cool. You're going to love it. Have you seen the picture in the catalog? All you have to do is let me play with your game."
"But, Carsten, think of your FUTURE!"
I think the future holds many adventures for these two buddies.
