A man reflects on the last road trip that he and his family took together and how a bag of batteries made the entire experience magical.
Originally performed by a man, but this is open gender.
It wasn’t the best road trip, but it was the last one. I can’t remember what small Canadian town we stopped in, but I remember me and my sister were walking through it as my dad met with his client. We were on our way to visit mom at her school and we stumbled into a store — I think it was antiques or something like that.
The people there were nice but the only thing I really cared about was the twenty pound Game Boy I was carrying around in my back pocket. It was so full and heavy with magic that I kept having to pull up my shorts as we walked.
My sister left to look at something and the old lady at the counter started talking to me. She was nice and she smelled like cake and old sweaters. I told her about the only thing that mattered to me at the time: Pokemon. She was fascinated.
