The Quest Continues...

I have been on a secret quest for a large portion of my life.

When I first heard of the beautiful blue wonderland of fun as a kid, I was about 7 years old, when all of the kids were talking about some of their favorite things in the world.  It was almost only mentioned in hushed tones, for fear of reprimand of the teachers, for you see: unless they were careful about whispering, they couldn't help but raise their voices to the heavens in praise of its glory.  For years, I had believed that it's existence was a myth, for there is no way that something so awesome and fantastic could truly exist.  That was, until I saw a kid with it and I knew immediately that I had to get my hands on it as well.

Unfortunately, that particular kid took great pleasure at seeing my longing face and spitting in it (metaphorically, of course), which fed my desire and turned that eventually into jealousy.  That jealousy has been so strong that it has carried over even to the present day whenever I hear one of my peers talk about how much fun they had with it.

Ever since that day, I have been on high alert in trying to find a way to immerse myself into the glory that so many of my peers had enjoyed.  I have been looking for artifacts from before my birth in order to satiate my hunger for this experience.  I have looked into the deep jungles of classic stores and internet auction sites.  I have sailed the seven seas and delved into the deepest jungles of the four corners of the electronic world to find it.  Unfortunately, I have not been able to fully partake in this journey, due to the everyday concerns of life getting in my way.

Recently, I had found some free time however: enough to resume my search.  This gnawing frustration only made more painful by looking up YouTube videos of others who have had the moments which I had sought for so long.

Then finally, earlier this morning, I had it cornered.  Using one of the most ancient devices I had ever had at my disposal, I found a website where I could finally truly have my turn at experiencing the greatness...only to have my search prove fruitless once again by the fact that my device simply could not provide me the capability to actually take part.

So close I was!  So close!  I will now have to wait again until I can resume my quest with the capability of finally enjoying what's behind this curtain:

 

MEGA MAN II!  I WILL FIND YOU!!!
