My love of video games began when I was just a little tot. I walked into a neighbor’s garage to retrieve a kickball and stumbled upon a mysterious box. I brushed off the dust and found that it was full of classic arcade games. It turned out that my neighbor was the creator of those old arcade games. He ended up giving me his entire collection and I’ve been fascinated with video games ever since. Actually nope. I just bought a console and played some games. None of that actually happened. But doesn’t that sound so much cooler?!
Anyways I'm Shish. Elephant enthusiast, Root Beer connoisseur, and inventor of the world's first upside down toaster. My spirit animal is a Tapir and my Kryptonite is child safety caps on bottles.
I like to think of my page as that awesome tree house your neighbor had when you were growing up. It's the place to be. Everyone's welcome but we do try to keep the riff-raff out. Enjoy.
When the aliens arrived none of us were ready. We were sitting around the dinner table, mindlessly chattering, when the knock came. Aunt Rose went to the door, swung it open, and was instantly vaporized. Horrified, we watched Aunt Rose's ashes slowly settle to the floor. The door creaked shut. "Aliens!" Grandma whispered.
A few moments of silence followed. And then the knock returned. This time Grandma grabbed her shotgun, signaled everyone of her intent, and crept quietly to the door. The kind, eternal light had left her blue eyes. Her jaw was set, and I saw the look of the vengeful she-wolf bent on protecting her cubs.
Grandma suddenly flung the door open and I saw her pump two rounds into Harold Schmidt, the grocer up the street. When the smoke cleared, we all stood there-quietly observing Harold's twisted, broken body.
"Who would have thought?" Grandma's voice quivered. "Old Harold Schmidt--a stinkin' alien!"
The bear and Carl lived together in the cave for several years until, one day, the true savagery of Nature being unleashed, Carl killed and ate him.
