This was essentially my money-making plan as a kid: set up an old picnic bench in the front yard, lay out the clay produce, and wait for the cash to start rolling in. I spent a good several days during the summer just sitting in my front yard, waiting for my neighbors to walk by and buy something. At the end of the day, I’d head inside and put the day’s spoils (usually a handful of change) into a robot bank on my shelf.

As for whether or not I ever earned enough to get a game, well… that will be revealed a few more pages down the road.
