Funny story…

I had to work late last night, and WhySoSalty was chilling at home.  After I got home, we ate dinner and watched a bit of Doctor Who.
I opened my PoGo (which I hadn’t played for most of the day due to work) and saw there was a forced update.  I do the update and open the game…
and **GASP!** “Alolan Exeggutor!  Come on, let’s go play!”

So we rush out in our pajamas and slippers, at 10:30pm, and go catch like 40 something Alolan Exeggutors each.

We also got some funny AR+ pics.  Maybe we’ll show you those sometime…

I hope you all are getting these Exeggutors!
