Well I was playing Animal Crossing in the Wii yesterday. And I found myself thinking, “You know, the music on the original Animal Crossing was so much better.”
Out of curiosity I fired it up. There was a town on the memory card that Andrea and I had created back in the day called Raleigh. Of course it was FULL of weeds! I wasn’t sure how long it’d been since I’d played the game, so I started talking to the citizens. They’d be sure to inform me. First animal I came across wasa kangaroo named Mathilda. “Whoa, a blast from my past,” she said. “I haven’t seen you for 38 months!” Wow. I knew it’d been a long time, but it sure didn’t seem like 3 years!
Then I run into Groucho who’d lived in my original town of Hilldale from the very first day I played the game. Apparently he moved to Raleigh and he complained that he hadn’t seen me for 52 months! I felt a little guilty to tell you the truth.
