Now we are older and when we try convincing our parents about someone coming out of the forest and flipping the fourwheeler they know that we really did that just trying to cover it up in fear of them. Here I will be telling you about when I broke my DS, something that meant a lot to me and that I thought my dad would be ultimately mad that I broke it. It was around late June, the year of 2006, it was two-years past the release of the Nintendo DS. I got one for my birthday which is May 25 and I was the happiest kid ever that I have received something of this.
