Then I asked him if he could think of any other special gifts that he had, just to see if he could think of anything else other than how good he was at video games.

When we stopped at a red light, I turned to him and waited for his answer.

He got a silly grin and nodded, saying, "My abilities with the ladies is pretty special."

I about lost it!  LOL.  He's a funny kid.
