My brother’s Christmas gift to Paco arrived yesterday.
It’s almost as though my brother understands boys–
because the Gil Hibben Generation 2 Pro Thrower Axe is a dream come true for our lad.
And three of his friends.
Even though an arctic front swept through last night, and it’s a few frozen nostril hairs past frigid on the thermometer, there was no deterring the middle schoolers from their hurling. Paco’s friends hadn’t been prepared for outdoor activity when they came over to hang out today, but despite the -10 degree temperatures and -30 degree windchill, they hucked that axe for a good half hour.
No fair-weather axers amongst my son’s friends. Hardcore all the way.
