What I’d like for my next birthday is a Target walkie-talkie so I could say, “We need more damn cashiers at the checkout aisles. Who the hell is responding?”

Maggie and I were watching a documentary earlier on Apollo 8. The Saturn V rocket, the guidance computer and DSKY input, the space sextant — it was all a technological marvel.
And then I remembered when I was 10 or 11 and finally got my highly anticipated NASA Space Shuttle game for my Atari 2600.
Activision worked with NASA to ensure the accuracy and challenge of Space Shuttle. It is one of the most complicated games ever made for the Atari 2600.
Get the fuck out. One had to successfully launch, pilot the craft into outer space, and then return home. Activision made the best games and I was overly excited to be an 8-bit astronaut.
I played it for about an hour and then never again. Because I didn’t get to shoot any aliens or even get outta the damn cockpit for some moon-walking.

Sometimes I dream that I’m floating on a raft in the middle of the ocean. My foot is dangling off the side. I can’t move because there’s no where to go. Drifting on an endless sea. Claustrophobic on my 8’ pontoon.
And then I wake up and the damn cats are hogging the bed. Again. 🙄
I have to tell you about my diaries podcast. Again. Because it’s that good. 🎙 Listen now →
