Searching for an xbox: Oh Covid!

This past weekend I embarked on an unexpected adventure. I needed to get my son an Xbox. Well, need is a rather strong term.  I really wanted to get him a new one and he really wanted one. The “wants” converged. Apparently, so did everyone else.

Every place we went to go buy an Xbox, we were told they were all out of inventory. And, there were no expectations for new inventory to arrive anytime soon. Blame it on the pandemic, I suppose.

With so many quarantines and sheltering in place guidelines, many people were left at home with toilet paper, zoom meetings and Netflix A need to keep the mind active, however, got people to try new things. I would be willing to bet, playing these video games was one such new daily repertoire for many. People not only hoarded toilet paper but they also went game aficionados. Probably many also bought these game consoles to keep the kids preoccupied while the adults kept on working remotely. Then there is probably a general shortage of supplies if the materials or consoles come from abroad. Which is bound to be true.

I suppose now I will have to look for some other form of entertainment for my son besides skateboarding. Storytelling. Acting. Coding. Reading. It’s all up for grabs.
