My son is one year old. Amazing. Being half Korean means he was able to participate in that culture's tradition of choosing his future on this day. An array of objects representing possible careers or futures are laid out in font of him and he is allowed to choose two. I'd been joking a lot about how I wanted him to be a footballer and I was delighted when he actually chose this object (along with a pen as second choice - prompting my own dad to joke that he is going to grow up to be a sports hack.)

Anyway, my good friend Gabriele had bought him a football, obviously knowing what he was going to choose and here he is playing with that particular present.
