This year, I rescued the red Mario baseball cap from the bottom of the bin and wore it all summer. This had the delightful side effect of eliciting spontaneous shout-outs from preteen boys wherever I went - "I like your hat!" "Are you a Mario fan?" "Hey Mario, where's Luigi?"
It's wonderful to spread joy and connection through beloved games. I'm just starting to play Mario Kart with my 5-year-old, who thinks it's a blast. Mario forever!
I'm curious - what's YOUR favorite Mario game? Do you play with your family and/or friends, or by yourself?
