The other day, I was cleaning out drawers upstairs, which were full of our kids' school stuff. Old papers and art and various supplies and books.. Out came this purple box, which I assumed was a pencil box.
But when I opened it, nope! It's a Nyko Gamoboy game case. And that writing on it? That's my wife's handwriting. It all came flooding back to me like a sharp zoom! My oldest child's first game system was a Gameboy Color. We learned pretty quickly that if he took it to a friends home or on vacation, he could potentially lose or leave behind a game. So this was the solution. Just make sure each game is in the case before you leave.
Anyway, the memories here, probably only valid to myself, my wife, and probably our now-grown-up son, are priceless. My next step is to find those old original games (I hope we still have them) and put them in the right slots. Then this becomes a most prominent piece of my Gameboy collection.
