It was totally refreshing to see how many kids were not only running around the show but also highly involved in the MegoMeet activities. Watching this generation of children work all day on Saturday putting together their custom figures, asking me for paints and actually doing stuff that doesn't involve a video game was inspiring.
I know we have a great group of guys and gals here, I get to see a bunch of them every year, but seeing the way these kids behave, interact and show artistic interest in things that don't have batteries and a viewscreen really is a testimonial to the solid foundation of our community. Seeing the next generation of toy geeks grow up, even just once a year, makes my advancing age seem insignificant and brings validation to my love of this hobby. It does realistically have a future beyond just us. I am now a believer.
Is it still insecurity if I fear my job is going to let me go because they don't realize how awesome I am?
