Throwback Thursday: Pikachu Edition
Christmas is quickly approaching and with it comes the many memories of Christmas past. This particular moment was apparently exciting for mini-Jonathan. But the worst part is how similar this photo is to my wishes this year…
Yes. I will admit it: this year I not only bought a Wii for myself to play Mario, but my only request for Christmas this year is a Nintendo DS and a Pokémon game.
I wish this was a joke.
Upon sharing my wish list with my mother, I could see it in her eyes. She was thinking: Didn’t he ask for this stuff in 1999? Yes. Yes, mom. I certainly did. My nephew even went so far to tell her that I didn’t need a Nintendo DS. How rude.
My promise: if my wishes come true and I receive such a glorious gift, I will be reenacting this photo opportunity as a twenty-four year-old man. Absolutely no shame. Being a child of the nineties, I have no problem admitting that I never stopped thinking about Pokémon. Even a little bit. I mean, you gotta catch ‘em all!
