Well, I took your advice, dear Internet, and talked to the Mom of the neighborhood kid. We did get our Gameboy back and some of the games. I would love to say that it all worked out well, but let me just leave it at this: Sometimes I wonder if maybe it is better to just leave things alone and not push. Of course I am not saying that anyone should be able to get away with stealing. I certainly don’t condone it. It just wasn’t a very good scene. That’s all I should say about it.
I suppose the bottom line in my own home is that Zarek did get his Gameboy back. I just wish it had been an easier process.
Thanks for your support, my friends.
