It is true, I normally follow the news and am aware of what is happening in local, national and world events. I have voted in every election since I was old enough to vote. I am still aware, but I don’t talk about it to anyone. This year however, has worn me to a frazzle. Friends, or people I thought were my friends, have shunned me for my political beliefs. I dare not say a word about anything that is happening on the political scene for fear that I will be attacked. So I play Pokémon Go. It is much safer to ask, “What level are you at?”
The timing of the release of Pokémon Go could not have been more perfect. Steve and I are not fanatics, but we sure have fun catching the pocket monsters. The word Gotcha, displayed when a little monster is captured, has a whole new meaning.
It is easy to know who are players. When we go to the park for instance, we instantly know who is playing Pokémon Go. They are the people holding their cell phones in front of them as they walk around. Everyone is easy to talk with and happy to share information.
I have read many stories on Facebook about autistic children playing Pokémon Go and finding it to be most enjoyable. They are also interacting with other children and people.
My fascination with Pokémon Go may not last long enough for me to be a master player, but it will get me past the elections in November.
Do you play Pokémon Go?’
