So I work at an elementary school as some of you know. a few weeks ago I saw a little gang of kids on the playground up to no good. they were all huddled up in a little circle and even had a “look out” for teachers. I managed to sneak up on them and catch them as I knew exactly what they were up to. When I surprised them and asked them what they were doing, they all panicked and immediately hid their “contraband,” which were some Pokemon cards. I told them I was cool I wasn’t going to snitch them out to the principal with the condition that they let me see the trades going on. For a good ten minutes I coached these kids in the art of trading pokemon cards as I had done so in my youth. It makes me happy to see pokemon alive and well in the younger demographics. I also learned that charizard is still at the top of everyone’s favorite pokemon list.
