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.

My daughter had one of those things and she fucking mistreated it.

It would "want to be fed" late at night, and my daughter supposedly couldn't hear it.

Of course, me, the light-sleeper, heard every blast.

I threw that fucking thing out in the back yard. Seriously.

My daughter wasn't happy, but that's her fucking problem. :)

The kids 'forgot' to feed their tamagotchi for a day, and those electronic pets died yesterday. Magically, through the 'reset' button, they have new ones. But I felt like a harpy mom this morning telling them, 'Remember to feed them and clean their poop!' Urgh.
