In this comic’s starring roll: My toys. Cheifly, my bear, Brownie.

Did you guys have those “My First Sony” things? Like this!

I loved that damn thing so so so much, I can still taste the microphone to this day (that’s how you use a microphone, right? Basically by talking with the mic actually touching your mouth?)

Somewhere in my mom’s basement are HOURS of recordings of me breathily making up my own radio commercials for toothpaste and snack foods, and interviewing the neighbor kid.

EDIT: I found one. Enter SALLIE MAPLE.
