Day 9 - My Most Favoritest Video Game Ever!

I love video games. When I was a kid the corner stores used to have video games in their lobby and we kids would play, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders and my personal favorite, Galaga. The games were only a quarter and we'd spend hours playing. Of course my father thought that was a total waste of time and money. Parents are so lame and just don't have a clue.

One year my parents bought my siblings and me our very own video game console. Oh we were the happiest kids in the whole neighborhood that year. They bought us an Atari 2600! Yeah baby! We were the envy of the whole block. My favorite game then was Pong. I'd spend hours trying to keep that little ball volleying back and forth between those two sticks.

It was all good until that heifer next door got the Atari 5200. I hate show offs.

I used to sell Avon (for about 18 years actually) and for many of the years I did that, I was on the "top 10" sales list in our district and one year -1980 I believe it was -I won an Atari 2600 which my kids loved and truth be told, so did I! My favorite game on it was "Breakout" and I would sit and play that till I was ready to just about pass out from sheer exhaustion! But my true fav video game was Ms. PacMan, which a co-worker and I used to play every chance we got in the vestibule of the truckstop where we worked. Talk about addictions! We really had it for the Ms. Pacman game.
