A Good Parent Would Let It Sleep, I Guess by JohnSu A Good Parent Would Let It Sleep, I Guess by JohnSu
I realized this morning that I haven't submitted anything all month, and so before leaving for work I created this polished masterpiece to set before you all.

It was not too long ago that I was finally able to complete my childhood dream of raising a tamagotchi.

Mine died after 7 days of eating nothing but white bread and candy and sleeping in its feces.

Tamagotchi Bandai

OMG rofl xDDD!

I got the app when it came out, too. But all mine died so quick.. and I have to admit I gave up cause it would ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS leave little piles RIGHT before falling asleep... and you couldn't freakn give it a bath until it woke up in the morning! MOST OF THE TIME DEAD ALREADY!


also.. no matter what I tried, they always grew into the little sperm looking ones.. so weak 8'D

That's the story of all tamagotchi raisers... They sleep before you can clean their poop.

I'm trying different methods of parenting with mine.

I'm on tamagotchi #3 and am only feeding it and scolding it. It will never be happy. Let's see how that goes.

I had raised one, and kept it for a long time until my cousin thought it would be funny to reset it. I cried for days as a child.

None ever died.

I remember those and NanoPets. Crap those things were hard to keep alive and if it got confiscated at school, you knew you had to start over. -_-

My sister and I had to teach our mum how to look after out Tamagotchis as we weren't allowed to take them to school. She did a pretty decent job of keeping them alive for us.

I never owned a tamagochi.

I did, however, have this weird knockoff version which was basically tamagochi, but with aliens.

It was pretty cool.

I was thinking "I fondly remember Tamagotchi! Why isn't there an iPhone virtual stupid pet thingy like that?"
And I found one and then remembered how annoying they are.
