Sorry to bother everyone. While you know, I'm sure, how much I enjoy all your postings - I enjoy the way all of you write, and everything you write, I wonder if you would mind if I made just one little request for advice. I am wondering what gift I might consider giving a beloved thirteen year old boy for his birthday. His gorgeous face radiates goodness and I hope to bring him something special! Now, I know you are a little touchy about newcomers, and I hope you weren't offended. My postings are far from perfect, I know, and if you wish to criticize any of my errors, I won't mind in the least.

An Amazon gift card (and instructions on how to benefit WFMU with the Smile thing). He'll be empowered by deciding himself on what to get.

When i was 13 i found some porno mags. I was pretty happy.

I'm with Brendan and Cecile. Either the museum thing or the porn.

Get him a gift certificate for a struggling local record store or graphic novel store.

oh! We got a gift certificate to a movie theatre once. That was great.

A museum membership? For a 13 year old boy?! Only if it's the museum of sex.

Tickets to the Porn Museum, then.

Thank you, everyone. Some great suggestions! He is from a very multiculti semi religious family, so I want to be careful about offending his parents (mine). Ken, my drone supplier has recently crashed his entire inventory!!! True story!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Wed. 9/16/15 10:58am Cecile:

my little nephews were pretty geeky about museums at that age. It can be natural history. Or maybe if the museum plays cool movies, you can get passes to them. I'm just throwing ideas out.

Speaking of, what comes between "fear" and "sex?"

There was this Firefighting Museum in New Haven I used to love - you could dress up in fireman clothes and slide down poles and pretend to talk on radios. I wonder if it's still there.

A 13 year old boy wants one thing and one thing only. To be petted when it's over and told it's ok it happens to everybody the first few times you just have to keep doing it

@Golde, the game Go or iGo or Baduk is one of the oldest games but has more depth of strategy than Chess. A nice club set and a book on Go strategy is what I wish I would have gotten when I was a 13 year old boy. (I didn't discover the game until my 40's when it was too late).

If he likes games, try Settlers of Catan.

I like Carcassonne for Euro-board games. Also, I've been playing "King of Tokyo" recently, which is also a great game.

When I was in France on business, the folks there told me Carcassonne got its name when the queen rang a bell to warn people of an approaching army. Is that a true story?

Catpiano .. with the reverb option!
