What was I doing when I was 13? Chances are it involved a game controller or maybe, from time to time, a bike. I guarantee you that any yard work was done with utmost reluctance and under protest, and that the game controller would be back in hand at my first opportunity.
In retrospect, it's amazing that I grew up to be a decently well-rounded adult. Of course, I'm also pretty sure I was a perfectly average teenager — which makes William Preston one heck of a kid.
