My name is Hawthorne. People call me the Pokemon Professor

Today I got to do one of the greatest things a guy can ever do in his life. I made a six-year-old boy smile.
As many of you know, I began playing Pokemon when I was six and was hooked from the beginning. Well, I heard that my boss' son Micah had gotten a Nintendo DS Lite for a present and had wanted to get a pokemon game, but wasn't able to. Now, Micah is a good kid and I like him. My boss is a r
eally good father from what I can tell and I'm on good terms with his family. So I decided I was going to do something special for Micah.
Tonight I went and had dinner with Robert (my boss) and his family. Then I told Micah that I heard he wanted to be a pokemon trainer and I gave him my copy of Pokemon Leaf Green. I figured the best place to start any new Pokemon Trainer is in the good ol' Kanto region with a choice of Charmander, Bulbasaur, and Squirtle. Plus Leaf Green is built to be more friendly to beginners. He named his character ASH, started with Charmander, and his first captured Pokemon was a Pidgey.
Pokemon fans, remember when we were that age? Remember how we all started out like that? How many of us named our character Ash because we wanted to be just like our immortal unholy hero as voiced by Veronica Taylor? Tonight I got to be Professor Oak for a change and start a young boy on his pokemon journey. It was a really special night for me and I'm sure it was equally special for Micah. The look of joy on his face would have made your heart melt. At the end of the evening, he gave me a hug and thanked me.
It may not be much, but I just made a difference in a young boy's life and that makes me feel very happy. Micah, I wish you the best of luck in your journey and I hope the reading isn't too tough for you.
And that is what I did today.
