Rereading My Childhood – A Year With the BSC #20: Animals and Thanksgiving

A Year With the BSC is an informal series wherein I explore the 1990’s CD-ROM video game The Baby-sitters Club Friendship Kit. The game is more of a personal organizer; it features with a calendar, an address book, a stationary kit, a flyer maker, and a personality profile. I’m focusing on the more interesting aspect of the game: the personalized letters and the journal entries. The full list of entries can be found at

It’s been a tough day, but I’m here to update you on the BSC. And, luckily, it was a short week the BSC, too.

Cool thinking, Mary Anne. I think it’s a great idea. What about the rest of you guys?

Okay, Stacey, but we were talking about a food drive. Also, I’m pretty sure this little story indicates that Charlotte Johanssen doesn’t understand what “luck” is. It is not finding a dog at an animal shelter. There are many great animals in shelters. It would be lucky if you found an exact replica of your childhood puppy who ran into traffic. Sorry to bring it down – it hasn’t been a great day.

It’s not a bad idea, but how will we be sure that people won’t misinterpret the animal drive and think it’s for adopting animals for Thanksgiving dinner. I wouldn’t have considered this scenario in 2015, but we live in a new world where we have to explicitly state that Nazis are bad and maybe we should consider counting every vote cast in an election.
