My boys began with Pokemon, so many years ago. I was sad when they graduated to Yu-Gi-Oh. Much more complicated and a lot less fluffy.
And then, quite unexpectedly he came back. Pikachu, that is – through the hands of my daughter.
Pokemon is still out there and is as popular as ever. At least it is in the third grade circle. But today’s Pokemon go beyond my little friends Charmander, Butterfree and Jigglypuff. It was this weekend that I found out just how far they’ve gone.
It started with words between my daughter and son. The laughing “Oh YEA?!” type of conversation.
Pokemon is better!
Well then, are there Grass Types of Yu-Gi-Oh cards?!
Yes, pretty much.
Well I bet there aren’t Rock Yu-Gi-Oh like on Pokemon!
As a matter of fact, there are.
I bet there aren’t any Piss Stick Yu-Gi-Oh’s!
Piss Stick! Like Piss Stick Pokemon!
What do you mean Piss Stick Pokemon?
Here! It’s in my book! LOOK!
See?! Piss Stick!
