I remember driving to every Burger King we could find
and eating there for every meal of the day
looking to collect more Pokemon toys for our kids
only to get yet another voltorb, much to my dismay

by the time the little toy promotion was over
I couldn’t even bear the sight of a Burger King
and even to this day I sometimes wince
like I’m recovering from being in a real Pokemon battle ring

    Our kids used to say “collectall” like it was one word. That was so cute. BTW, it took me until this year to get over the whole Pokemon toy thing and return to a Burger King and I was just starting to like their chicken fries when they dropped them from their menu.
