“I have a surprise for you!”
H & I don’t exchange presents on Valentine’s, so imagine my surprise when he asked me to hold out my hands over dinner. Ta-da! It was a cute little Cyber Pet, think Tamagotchi. How adorable! I had one of these toys in college. In the middle of Philosophy class, I would pretend to get a notebook from my bag. Truth was I was feeding my Tamagotchi.
You can choose from three animals for this little game: a dinosaur, a bird or a dog. Since I’ve been wanting a puppy, I choose a dog and named it Ichigo, after my favorite Katamari cousin. What pet would you have chosen?
Ichigo now keeps me company at work. I was in the middle of writing an e-mail when the alert went off. Turns out he pooped! Another cool thing is if I can’t attend to it for a long period of time, I can book him into a Pet Hotel.
Before we left for work this morning, H asked me the usual questions, “Do you have your cell phone? Your keys?” And then he added, “Do you have your dog?” Hehe. I’m taking care of two pets now! My sweet husband and a cute pixelized puppy.
