    Good ol cliques to teach us that we were not all equal and all had our place in the grade school caste system.

    I should clarify that I was the after school TEACHER, not one of the kids, so I wouldn't let them play for keeps.

    Yes, I only have a few of them. I can't remember where I got them. Probably from a toy show.

    I worked in a shop that specialized in board games, puzzles, MAGIC, and, yes, Pogs, during the nineties. The manager had the brilliant idea that the shop should not only sponsor and host weekly Pog tournaments, but that we should also all become well-versed in Poggery so we could help players determine different stuff about their Pogs and help them do Pog trades and buy backs. Trust me, there were Pogs for virtually EVERYTHING in pop culture at the time. Suffice to say, when the Pog craze died, so did the shop's business and he shut it down about two month later. At his going-out-of-business sale, he was selling mixed bags of a 100 Pogs for about a $1.00. Those things were a nightmare to keep track of!!!
    Oh then, what's this? Big flashy lighty thing, that's what brought me here! Big flashy lighty things have got me written all over them. Not actually. But give me time. And a crayon.
