Epilogue – Week of March 11th


Last Sunday me and the boys went to Toys R Us. We went to get Hot Wheels track and say goodbye. They were out of all the track we wanted. My oldest understood all the TRU’s were closing. My youngest said, “Well, at least there’s the one by Grandma and Grandpa.”

I had to explain all of the TRU’s were going away.

I have nothing but fond TRU memories, because I have nothing but fond memories of my toys. I loved playing with my toys. They were gasoline for my imagination.

My boys love playing with toys. They want screen time (like every modern kid), but we have strict limits. They play with toys. We play with toys. I have nothing but fond TRU memories with my boys. It makes me even happier that I can buy the things for my kids that my parents could not.

That’s why I have to say, “Fuck you Kara.” Fuck your clickbait article. Fuck your contrarian opinion.

Reading, going to parks, and volunteering are a part of our life too – because we’re good parents trying to raise good kids. Good kids that become good adults. If any person spent so much time at TRU (that they couldn’t do those things), then they probably worked there.

And now they’re unemployed. Probably at 33,000 people.

(Said with acidic sarcasm) Hopefully they enjoy reading books at the park while volunteers staff the workers’ local food bank.

As a Michigan resident I knew about Dave Brandon. I was bummed when TRU hired him. I wish I would have shared that publicly. Turns out my fears were confirmed. If you want to direct your TRU at one person, then Dave Brandon is your guy.

Inspired by the #33 Figure Mystery that was recently posted, William sent in one of his faded figures.

It is a faded Magenta #193. He admitted that the figures were difficult to photograph don’t properly showcase the odd coloring. (Trust me, I fully understand.)

He was shocked how the Magenta figure fading left it looking more like a faded Red figure.

I love the oddity of faded M.U.S.C.L.E. figures. It reminded me that I have a few full bags of them. You can see the faded Purple/Dark Blue bag in the top left corner of the picture. I think some faded Salmon can be seen towards the bottom of the picture.

I can’t wait to start cutting again.

Let’s take a look at eBay.

Welcome to your weekly installment of “Damn the torpedoes!

After 2 years, 6 months, and 24 days would you still dick around with the price?
