The Atari 2600.
5th grade year.
Best Christmas present ever.
Nearly pulled an Asteroids all-nighter that first night
I hyper-spaced for months.
Then came Pac Man & yes, I had the fever.
Breakout. Kaboom. Pitfall. Defender. Dig Dug. Centipede.
Loved ’em all.
This weeks Gravy offering is a nod to all that 8-bit awesome
and to my favorite holiday, St. Pat’s of course.
But hey, I gotta boogie.
I got me a pocket full of quarters
& I’m headed for the arcade.
See ya there?
