From summertime Pokemon hunting at Adler Planetarium
Those scamps at Niantic, the Pokemon company, have released 80 new Pokemon into the world and okay, thanks! If I take the 147 bus to work, I sleep as soon as my butt hits the seat until I get off somewhere on Michigan Avenue (depending on mood). If I take the 136, from home until Wilson I look for Pokemon and am often rewarded with rarer things. After Wilson, it becomes a cavalcade of the usual and I put away my phone, hug my backpack tight, and close my eyes to cop a few zzzzs. I am not as dedicated as some but I am still looking. It keeps my attention, makes the ride go faster, and, hey, I even catch some Pokemon! Whatever Pokemon there are out there that I've not caught, I AM LOOKING FOR YOU, even the though you will probably flee. You so like to flee, you vicious wild beasts. Thanks, Niantic, for the distraction because I still care that they're there.
