Breaking a bone is never an enjoyable experience. Everything from the actual pain to wearing a cast or sling can make you totally miserable. But this kid is super psyched to be all wrapped up.

Meet Walker. He’s busted his arm, is bed ridden, and is being straw-fed some purple Gatorade. Once he wakes up, however, he goes into an excited frenzy about the cast on his arm.

He even goes so far to hug the clunky thing. The affection is too much to handle. 

I guess for kids there are some upsides to being in a cast—like getting to sit out during gym class and having cute classmates carry your books. But showering with a garbage bag over that thing is not going to be fun, Walker.

Watch the whole video:

At least the thing is a fashionable shade of red. Have a great summer, kid!
