Perhaps he is quite excited about tomorrow’s soccer practice. He really wants to make the team. and even if he does not, you still support him. All and all, he is a really fine boy. Why not reward him with a fine pair of boys leather shoes? He really deserves it, does he not. And what about the rest of his attire? Surely a smart jacket and good pair of trousers to go with the completion of turning out a really fine gentleman.
