Today while I was searching for my comfortable toe socks, I stumbled upon my old Game Boy Color and accessories.
I forgot how much of a nerd I was in middle school carrying this monstrosity around. But I loved my Handy Pak that went with it because it magnified and lit up the screen while providing stereo sound and a joy stick. The most important feature was the light. The light saved me from the pains of boredom during long car rides in the dark.
I was the pimp mama of Game Boys back in the day. My guy friends were super-jealous until they copied me and bought one themselves. I have many fond memories riding between school and home playing on this thing. I was also cool enough to have the rechargeable battery pack (purple, of course).
