Death by Degrees

I feel attacked by this relatable content.

Last night, Prime and I ran to our local Wal-Mart; we’re still waiting on the reissue Soundwave and cassettes to hit shelves and Wal-Mart is taking its time putting them out. So every chance we can, we check.

It was a fruitless endeavor, just like all the previous attempts. No, they weren’t ready for purchase, but Prime did find a pair of Studio Series Bumblebees: beater Bee from the 2007 film and WWII Bee from The Last Knight. He grabbed them. So it wasn’t a total waste of time.

Then we got into the car and started heading home. Scamper’s fan gave out. It’s working now, but barely.

Another cut, another bleed, another small death by degree. It’s not going to be long before we have to find a replacement for him. Prime has said if anything catastrophic were to happen to Scamper, that would be the end of the road.

I dread that day. I truly do.

He’s been faithful, my little Scamper and I hate to say goodbye. I know he’s just a car, but he’s been ours for so long; it’s hard to let him go.

When that day comes, I’ll cry. I know I will. There’s no point in fighting that particular emotion. But I’ll also be grateful. He’s a loyal little Autobot. He won’t be forgotten, that’s for certain.

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.
