A photo essay by Marty Pickleman, Grade 5
I like video games. They are fun.
Sometimes I carry my video games in a green box.
I unfold them like this.
My sister likes to scare me by hiding in the box and jumping out.
If she beats me at Tetris, I fold her back up.
If I win, she makes a bowl of chunky butter cubes.
Sometimes my friends come over.
If there isn't enough room, we become tiny.
If there's too much room, we get really old.
Some days, I play video games without cords.
Some days, I play them without looking at the TV.
And some days, I play them without being white.
Video games are fun.
