I remember how much I wanted my own copy of Pokemon as a kid. It wasn' t really peer pressure. None of my friends ever said anything like You have to get this new game' or whatever.
H . However, it is true that all of my friends were playing it. They talked about it because I wasn' t playing the games, I felt completely excluded.
My life was tough though- My father was a good man. He worked hard. We weren' t a wealthy family. My dad worked seven days a week at the local sawmill. He was an excellent carpenter, but
15? carpentry work was scarce. He did as many small carpentry jobs as he could, basically working two jobs at once. He was honest. He was nice. He never raised his voice. He never drank. He
was just a good man.
k . My mom was a different story. From a very early age, I hated her. That sounds horrible, I know... for a son to hate his own mother. But I did. I hated her so much.
She was addict. Prescription painkillers- She never worked. Never looked for ajob, nevermid anything around the house. All she did was lay in bed, watch TV, and pop pills. When she had no pills, all she' d
do is complain. She' s scream. Throw things. Threaten to call the police and tell them my dad was abusing her. All she cared about was drugs and getting out of work. Even if my dad didn' t cave into her demands
she found ways to get money for pills. She' d steal things. I found it hard to hang on to any of my things because she' d take them and sell them at the local pawn shop for a quick fix. My dad' s expensive power
tools, the toys I' d just gotten for didn' t matter. If it wasn' t bolted down she had no problem selling it. I guess my dad' s one vice is that he never had the conviction to kick her out or put an absolute end
to what she did.

I remember it was my tenth birthday and money was tight. My mom andjust done the worst thing I think she had ever did. Emptied out the savings account my dad had started for me. There was over EDD dollars in
that account and she took every last penny. When my dad found out it was the first time I' d ever heard him yell. It was the closest he' d ever came to hitting her. -.but he finally just let it go and told me he' d do
everything he could to pay me back for it. It was a dumb thing for him to say, really, considering it was his money in the first place.
I was prepared to not get anything for my birthday. I had a Gameboy at the time with a copy of Tetris. I took it with me everywhere so my mom couldn' t steal it. I knew times were bad but I was a kid, y' know? I
wanted Pokeamon. Just that one thing. I wanted to feel like I was a kid at school. I wanted to laugh with my friends and feel like I belonged with them, even when I knew I had to go back home to do all of the
household chores my mom refused to do or watch her to make sure she didn' t fall down the stairs in one of her stupors. I dropped a few hints for the game but was met only with unenthusiastic
I didn' t ask for it directly because I knew my mom would throw a fit about how money didn' t grow on trees or something, the hypocrite.
The morning of my birthday, I was ready to go to school. No plans for a party, no cake, and no presents. I remember my dad was up early that morning fixing my lunch, which was unusual. I usually fixed my own-
He gave me my lunchbox and sent me along to the bus stop. Gave me a hug, promised everything would be better next year and that I shouldn' t be disappointed- 'Mom has a problem', he said, hut I' m trying real
hard to get her better'.

I just nodded dumbly and went on my way. I was n' t that disappointed. I' d gotten so used to disappointment at that point that I' d grown completely desensitized to it.
I was depressed all morning. Teachers didn' t care. No one even knew it was my birthday except for me. I didn' t bother to tell any of my friends. There' d be no party for 'em anyway.
Lunch came around. I opened up my lunchbox-
All my favorites were there. Turkey and cheese sandwich with mayo, , a pack of gusher's-.
and underneath all that, there it was. A copy of Pokemon Blue. I had no idea where he get the money for it, but there it warband a note with it. I remember that note word for word.
I' m sorry that I can' t give you the birthday you deserve. I hope this makes up for it. keep it safe- Don' t let anyone take it feom you. It' s yours and only yours- Next year will be better. I promise. I love you so much."
I in the Lunchroom- Bawling- I still have the cartridge.
I love my Dad.
