As I’m packing things up to move to our new house, I noticed something terrific:
No matter how much shit my kids accumulate over their lifetime, they will never have more than I have.
This is a picture of every piece of media I own. Every book, CD, movie, video game, and picture that I own is contained in these boxes. It’s (almost literally) a ton of boxes. My kids will never own movies. They’ll never have music, books, or video games in a physical form. They probably won’t even have posters on their wall.
It makes me sad that they won’t experience the same things I did: waiting for months to finally play Super Mario Bros. 3 or combing through isles of albums because, even though it’s old, The Wall is somehow always sold out.
But it makes me happy that they won’t get hernias.
