Of late I have noticed a very interesting trend. People seem to really enjoy giving Evan things because he is so stinking cute. Today he received some yogurt raisins and a really neato pen. The raisins came from the pacemaker guy that interrogated Evan's pacemaker on Saturday. He had remembered that the first time he interrogated the pacemaker (during Evan's pre-operation check up) he was chowing down on some yogurt raisins. When Evan flipped out royally on Saturday he decided that he would bring some raisins for this visit in the hopes that he would not be so mad. It didn't work but the thought was nice. The pen was also an attempt at distraction from the guy that was helping train the pacemaker guy.
This sort of thing has been going on pretty much his entire life. I think there is also a tiny bit of pity (because of Evan's heart defect) added in there because Harry is pretty dang cute too but has not been given anything from strangers. I guess it is a good thing that Evan is not a teenager right now or this could go to his head.
