I tend to bond with inanimate object and develop relationships with them. I started doing this very early in life and I have to admit, a couple of my best friends have been arcade games. Because of that I was surprised to find this piece by Scott Youtsey that captures one of my fantasies perfectly.
Alone one night in an empty arcade, I run out of quarters. I turn to leave when I hear some noise emanating from the Pac-Man machine I had been playing. When I turn around this wondrous automaton would have sprouted from the arcade game. Together we would leave the arcade. Then we would get into all sorts of adventures and become best friends.
