that moment when a random kid’s life suddenly owns yours: a gif story post 

this all was too insanely cute not to gif.

So, I think we all know how this story begins. I just wonder what they’re talking about.

If that isn’t amazing enough, the kid gets to FIST BUMP with Mariano:

The father (or so I assume) nearly gifbombs this with his extended arm, but I can’t blame him.  You’d be excited too if Mariano took your own kid under his grace for a moment.  In fact, this part might be my favorite:

I just love how you can make out “Hall of famer!” so we all get the point he’s trying to make.

And can we briefly go back to that kid’s smile after he was done talking to Mariano Rivera?

Cute.

This is like the ultimate trump card.  Seriously.  You can do many awesome things in life, but this kid will be able to say, “I talked to Mariano Rivera at Wrigley Field, and we fist bumped.”  This probably can’t be topped - it would only lose to someone who, what asked what awesome moment they had in life, answered, “Hi, my name is Mariano Rivera.”
