CI Phoenix Does It Wrong [ )
I went to Gamestop to turn in a Playstation 2 slim that I had to put towards a full preorder of for my brother to go with the EEC! I bought him.
I noticed this raggedy looking kid that was poking around. looking real excited, and he turns to his mom, who' s wearing a grey sweatshirt with cigarette burns and grey sweatpants, obviously super poor. The kid goes "Oh wow.
mom, look how cool this one looks?’ And he picks up a copy of Gitaroo Man. for the PSA- I was pretty impressed, because that' s probably my second favorite game of all time.
His mom says, pretty gruffly, "That don‘ t look like it' ll fit in your Gameboy. That' s what we came here to get." I guess they were Christmas shopping early. k made me kinda sad because the kid looked to be maybe 9 or IO. and
he didn' t believe in Santa anymore- The kid looked kinda sad and put it back. then started staring at which GBA game he wanted.
Ne been pretty depressed for the last couple weeks, but I was kinda happy that this was something I could do something about. So. I did. I turned around and bought the copy of Entered Man, Metal Gear Solid 3, and Gungrave:
Overdose (some of my favorite games) then I handed him the bag full of everything, the PSA. the two controllers I had with it. and the games. He looked at me and asked why I did. and I told him. "because Santa sent me." And
then I looked up at his mom and his mom was crying, and that made me cry, and I left gamestop a blubbering mess.
felt fucking great. man. , thati
