What I Learned From Tamagotchi
After weeks of searching the local toy and ‘everything store’ stores for tamagotchi, which are now the hottest toys in the elementary school set (AGAIN…these were popular, what, ten years ago?), last Friday we finally found tamagotchi (more specifically, "Tamagotchi Connection, Version 3") for Boychild and Girlchild. They used their own money to buy them, and are dutifully caring for their handheld ‘pets’.
Yesterday, I asked Boychild what tamagotchi DOES. This was his response:
1) They play a lot
2) They make connections with friends
3) They try to avoid the poop
How human they are!
You’ll have to excuse the short post today, my work friends and I are scrambling, shorthanded, trying to avoid the poop.
