  1. 1) Game consoles. As a kid I had to enjoy Atari video games at friends’ houses because my parents hated me, clearly. AS an adult I always have the latest and greatest and usually multiple formats (XBox, Nintendo, etc.)

    2) Matchbox cars and those bright orange tracks you put together in all sorts of configurations with loops and such.

    3) Yep, Pong. I am the original vidiot.

    4) We didn’t get many sweetened cereals provided, so probably Cheerios.

    5) I grew up at the foot of Red Rocks, Mt. Falon and Mt. Morrison, so I spent my childhood roaming the mountains, Red Rocks, creeks and an lakes around Morrison.

  2. 1) Sugar cereals, as a child the cereals my parents would buy looked and tasted like they were something fed through a chipper.

    2) my bmx bike, I rode that thing everywhere and no slight incline was ever avoided as they were all “jumps”.

    3) “video game” my first was on the computer in the school library, the Oregon trail. First as we think of them now was probably Ataris combat.

    4) see answer #1 but at friends houses big fan of lucky charms or fruity pebbles

    5) building “forts” in the trees or woods near our house. They were absolute crap shacks but we loved them?
