Just because it triggers a warm sense of nostalgia

While drinking my morning coffee, I realized that since leaving Manila I have not seen a single child here in Tanauan playing the yo-yo. When I was a kid I used to play with yo-yos all the time, and it makes me sad that children nowadays don't even know what they are.

   I don't know if the touchscreen has completely overtaken every other traditional toy, but I'm sure kids these days are glued to their iPads, smartphones, and anything with Internet connection. Too bad yo-yos can't connect to Wi-Fi.

   Here's an interesting short documentary I've stumbled upon while scouring the web. And yes, it's about yo-yos.
