An Epiphany

As I've been posting the A to Z of my youth, I've come to a conclusion about my passion for RPG's.

You see, I stopped buying toys around the time I was 15 years old.  It wasn't that I didn't like them still, it was that I was too embarrassed to shop in toy stores.  I thought people were staring at me and judging me (yeah, it's a shame, but it's who I was).  So I stopped buying toys.

A few years later, I not only started gaming, but I started buying as many RPG's as I could (not really) afford.  It was a real drive and it replaced toys.

I didn't realize that the new hobby filled the same space in me as the previous hobby.  My RPG tastes have always been inspired and strengthened by the toys I played with and now I see it's a deeper connection than I'd previously imagined.

I don't necessarily regret this, but I'm startled I didn't see it earlier.  When one door closes...
