If you think you're thankful for it now, kid, just wait. At your age it's just a fun little toy that's only useful for peeing on stuff and having confusing thoughts about Dora The Explorer. In high school it will betray you, causing humiliation, frustration, and inadequacy at every turn. But by college, it will be your trusted advisor, occasional lover, and closest friend. Still very fun to pee on stuff, though.
