It was a weird feeling to find something from my childhood in an antique store.
Jason and I were spending a lazy Sunday afternoon perusing Apple Hill Antiques in State College, PA, when we came across this Nintendo game system. First of all, yes, we do enjoy “antiquing” together. We both have old souls and appreciate history. So we will probably end up being that funny, old, retired-couple you see going into antique stores every other weekend, spending afternoons at matinees and eating dinner early (wait a minute, we already are this couple! Does anyone else get hungry by 5:00 p.m.? I sure do! lol) Anywho, back to the story…
The Nintendo system was in full working order and it ended up coming home with me. Jason hooked up all the wires and powered it on, and that old familiar tune of Mario Brothers filled the room. Mushrooms, Princess Toadstool, the green tunnels, and those turtle-duck creatures were back!
And even though seeing this game in an antique store is a sign that I’m getting older, I’m still amazing at Super Mario Brothers 3! I’ll play you anytime!
