We have lost our minds.
I shouldn't say "we." I don't participate in this idiocy, and I doubt you do either. Yet I hear that the future of the world depends upon idiots like this gorging on imported crap from China. I am sick of it. So I won't go along with this nonsense any more. Next year, a few small presents for the kids. Their big presents can wait until their birthdays.
I bought my son a BB gun, by the way. I think this will be a far more interesting gift than any video game. In fact, I know this. If there is one thing boys like more than anything else, it is destroying things. Blowing up toy cars with firecrackers, shooting up cans with BB guns, these types of activities are far more engaging than Mario Brothers. And there's not a chance in hell that I'll let him use the BB gun without me being right next to him.
