RYAN AND I

A claw machine filled with stuffed animals in Hongdae, Seoul, South Korea.

Ryan and I are like a married couple. He holds my bag. He waits for me. We fight about seemingly everything, but nothing at all.

We dance together. We eat fatty food together. We drink soju outside convenience stores together. Best part is we can be ugly together. 

Now we’re both addicted to those stupid claw-machine games that rob children (and apparently adults) of money. That’s right. I said it. I’m not denying I have an obsession with winning toys. At least I’m not alone.

Ryan and I enable each other to do most things. This means we literally couldn’t stop trying to win stuffed Pororos, pink squirrels and these random raccoon-looking things.

By the time our out-of-control spree was over, we hit up several different machines, bagged ten stuffed animals, and attracted quite the audience.

Ryan and I even devised schemes. We had signature moves. We shared tips, skills, and combined our resources. Talk about a perfect Honeymoon for an odd-couple.

I’m so thankful for Ryan’s friendship in Korea, and I can hardly wait to get my hands on those machines again.
