I’m sure there’s a word for getting overly attached to inanimate objects, but I could care less really.
I got Link around the same time I started Youtube back in August of 2010. If you know me personally, then you know I’m not tech savvy in the slightest, even more so in 2010; back then I couldn’t even get the webcam going and Youtube was as foreign to me then as 4Chan is to me now.
Link and I traversed the then wide open plains of the internet together. The Jarvis to my Tony Stark, the Tucker Folley to my Danny Fenton, The Wade to basically er’one on Kim Possible. I opened up RadioactiveYo on it. I watched my first porn on Link, and then just as quickly slammed my laptop shouting, “WHAT THE FUCK?”

Cherish the little things.
