The DS Life is a weekly feature in which we scour the known world for narrative images of Nintendo's handheld and handheld gamers. If you have a photo and a story to match it with, send both to thedslife at dsfanboy dot com.

Sometimes, everything just seems to be going your way. There isn't a single worry plaguing your usually beleaguered mind, you've got a girl back at home who loves you, and the world is yours to conquer. Then something unexpected comes along and makes your day even better!

This is what nine-year-old Manuel looked like last year when he received a copy of The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap for his birthday. This is also what our twenty-something selves looked like yesterday when we took home The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. Except, of course, with a DS Lite. And with The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night peeking out of the GBA slot.

And without any pants on.
