cereal box luck

Pikachu! Or as I say everytime I see one: PIKA!!!

We randomly happened to see a commercial announcing that certain cereals would contain pokemon cards yesterday and then even more randomly, at our grocery store the cereal Remy actually eats was one of those cereals. 

There was a Pikachu on the box, but we knew not to get our hopes up. 

But yes, lo and behold, he got it, the one card he wanted!

"I have really good card luck," he said, reminding me that he got a Shin Godzilla card on his second box purchase. 

(Ummm... No, I didn't point out the obvious on that one. He's eleven. The second box was good luck, to him.)

And all of this when he had decided he was done with pokemon last spring. 

But I knew. I saved them. I don't do that often, because decluttering is a good life skill, but I had a feeling. 

(Maybe a  sentimental feeling.)

Seriously. Pikachu is so cute. 

(And is not a bad playable character for me in Smash Bros. Though I lean towards the archers and Robin, because throwing flames is awesome.)
