I am ashamed of myself

When I was a kid, I used to pull the stickers off the rubix cube squares and line them up. I knew kids who used hammers to break them apart then put them together correctly.

And then I see this kid.

And I am ashamed.

But speaking of old toys, does anyone here remember Tamagotchis? And I don’t mean the dumb modern ones with their fancy hi-tech wireless communication and their accessories and their…their…they’re just not as cool as they used to be!

As they used to be, in 1997.

Remember these? Oh man, that fad was awesome. It lasted for about two weeks (incidentally, the amount of time a Tamagotchi lives, assuming your school wasn’t so mean as to ban them or your mom wasn’t so mean as to have a life while you were at school that didn’t involve babysitting a ten-pixel digital pet.)

Good times all around.

Anyhow, the point of this story is I was given an original one for my birthday. I am bringing back the fad.

Help me bring back the fad. Don’t worry, it’s only about four or five times as expensive as it originally was.

    I never had a tamawhatchoocallit but I do remember taking the stickers off the rubix cubes. I was a little cheater when I was a kid, but only with rubix cubes and solitaire. I never cheated when other people were involved. I only lied to myself.

    I remember the tamagotchis when they were McDonalds toys and they didn’t really work at all… Now they’re almost as stupid as… dare I say it? Webkinz.

    Rubix cubes-can suck my ass. I’ve never completed one, or known anyone that has.
    Tamagotchis-i had a dinosaur. I killed it by going to school. I cried for a week.
    The girls look like evil clones.
