Alright, alright, so this isn’t actually me. Why not? Because if this was taken when I was this kid’s age, my entire bed would have been covered with Pokemon Cards. I had every card from the original, jungle and fossil sets, not to mention two, count ’em, TWO Charizards. To answer your  next question, yes, the ladies did flock to me. I did not have that awesome robe however.

In all seriousness, it was Pokemon cards that allowed me to first make friends starting a new school in 7th grade. I saw one kid bring his binder to school, and after talking with him, I brought my own. Nerd cred was instantly earned among the Pokemon card collection group at my new school (also known as “the cool kids”), and I was in.

Godspeed kid, may your holofoils bring you love and fortune.
