I remember climbing Ayers Rock when I was in primary school. I went on a trip around the Northern Territory with my father and sister. It was around the time Digimon were really cool. (Actually on second thought, Digimon were probably never cool.) For those of you who weren’t 90’s kids they were more or less Tamagotchi’s which could fight each other when linked together.
I climbed the whole fucking rock then at the very top had my Digimon I had been training furiously the whole trip finally evolved. This moment of my Digimon evolving and the view of the sun setting from the top of the rock was amazing. This lasted approximately 40 seconds until my dad removed the Digimon from my hands and threw it away over the rock. In a sense this was what losing my virginity felt like (Aside from also lasting just under a minute): I finally achieved something I’d been trying to do for so long but at the same time it was then lost forever.
Of course I found my Digimon again a few hours later on the way back down, but I’m still looking for my virginity. I plan on putting posters up soon.
