The Day I Became Obsolete

Sooner or later everything becomes obsolete.


I have fond memories of playing my Sega Megadrive in the 90s. Michael Jackson moonwalked his way across the 30cm screen, Sonic the Hedgehog ran at unfathomably fast speeds and life was good.

People would tell me how lucky Hannah was to have a dad at home, they would tell me that it was wonderful that I had made the choice to spend more time with my little girl. They told me I would love it, that it would be so much fun. They told me I was lucky to have a four-day weekend.
