My Object of Affection

“My most prized possession is my Street Fighter II arcade cabinet. We met in a corner convenience store on the way to school in 1991 and I’d play against the older kids who’d just kick my ass. They knew the secret moves and wouldn’t tell you how they did it. I’d go to school with no lunch money because I’d drop all my quarters into this game. Then, I finally started to pick it up. Where once I’d miss out on lunch because I had no dough, I’d now miss out on lunch because I’d still be taking on challengers with just one quarter! This game turned a hobby into my passion.
