The game store

Kyla leadMommy’s Weird

By Kyla Cornish

My seven-year-old daughter was recently invited to a birthday party. I asked the mother if her son would like a gift card for his birthday. She said “yes” and suggested a store.


Easy peasy. I have averted the dreaded, “Oh, now I have two of these” moment that happens at every kid’s birthday.

So off Bot and I go to grab the gift card.

Here’s the thing.

It was a gaming store.

Bot has never been into a gaming store.

Bot doesn’t have an iPad.

Bot doesn’t have an iPhone.

Bot doesn’t have a gaming device of any sort.

Bot turns five in a few weeks.

Bot was in heaven.

Bot wants to go back.

Sorcery, I tell you.


Hey, thanks for being here. Don’t forget to subscribe over to the right where it says, “Follow the Weirdness” and toss in your email. It makes me happier then Leo DiCaprio was when he got his big break on Growing Pains.
