You know how mothers save up their dolls for their future daughter, or how dads collect and store their action toy figures for their future sons?

I’m not a hoarder so I don’t have anything for Sadako. But I recently discovered that my late, great grandmother saved one of my toys. I don’t know what it’s called but it’s that neon-colored tube that makes this weird sound. 

And so one day I saw Sadako playing with it and I just had to show her a couple of ways to play with it. 

Seeing that toy made me miss my happy childhood and my grandmother.

I think I want to be a semi-hoarder and save some (just some, okay?) of Sadako’s toys for her to appreciate 30 or so years from now.
