A baby boy arrives into the world on an incredibly windy day!
As a mother for the first time Marilyn leaned over the hospital cot she couldn't help but feel proud to be the mother of what was surely going to be the most beautiful, most angelic and most innocent baby boy ever born.
Look at his cute little smile she undoubtedly thought to herself, could I have a more perfect baby in the whole world?
The baby clearly having absolutely no idea what she was thinking, or simply wanting to add an unforgettable moment to what might otherwise always remain a most precious and treasured broke wind louder than any baby should be able to possibly manage!
With every new mother and health worker present clearly knowing no baby could ever create such a noise all eyes were fixed firmly judgingly on this new mother who quite rightly had quickly come to realise that perhaps her beautiful new baby boy wasn't all that angelic or perfect after all!
LOCATION – Barnsley general & district hospital
TIME – early hours of the morning
DATE – February 21st 1980
Somewhere in one of the delivery rooms the wind breaking baby boy was born.
He'd go on to be known by various names as the years passed by not all of them would probably get past the swear censor here, but some know him as that old guy that use to be pretty good at video games Legacy Smikey.
He was named Michael David by mum Marilyn and Dad Victor (Yes dad I'll use Vic from now but if that's riled you up already don't ever read chapter 10.5!)
Why Michael David?
Sometimes my mum use to say MD as in medical doctor but that was never going to work I don't have even a fraction of the human compassion required to do that kind of work.
My mum had an uncle called Michael David but everybody just called him David so it took quite a while for anyone to actually realise.
She had originally chosen Daniel but my Grandma kept saying little dan or danny and My mum doesn't do shorted or changed names so that was quickly off the table.
Yes I'm aware Michael can be shortened in a similar fashion hey their logic not mine!
This baby had no Idea what impact he would have on the world.
Or what life had in store for him.
Many dark roads lie ahead of him with a few sprinkles of light in between.
Love, laughter and life, heartbreak pain and death, this kid was going to see it all in a relatively short space of time.
With a deep interest in writing and note keeping throughout his life here begins the story of one average unspectacular little baby who grew up to have an average unspectacular life that like most people was shaped by the major events that happened throughout it.
Afterall doesn't everyone have a keeper of the mind who may or may not be occasionally be presented in a sheepish fashion?
(Ed) All of the above is so much better than the Foreword, why not just make this the foreword and oh I don't know make this chapter about creation you know like the title suggests if you're already here it's not creation is it?
And lose that last sentence if you keep mentioning the sheep nobody will ever read this you know it's not cool or funny, it does make you sound even more crazy than you are and they won't be here for quite a few chapters yet anyway! (Ed)
As the sperm began it's long and dangerous journey....
(Ed) Yes alright point taken I've read that version lets just move on and hope for the best (Ed)
Chapter 1.5 The Mind
Our protagonist gets a name
(Ed) It's not a name it's a tile give him a name already!(Ed)
The keeper speaks some more madness
(Ed) And everyone wonders if these Mind chapters will ever remotely make any sense try from chapter 3.5 people the first couple of mind segments make zero sense! (Ed)
Not everyone general readers or our game industry partners will be happy about the inclusion of this book on the website.
If we lose views or press content or review copies then that's just life and that's how it will be.
Under no circumstances will this content be removed to satisfy the desires of anyone else.
We won't be publishing more than 4 of these entries a month so they shouldn't be all that hard to just skip past.
Talking about life's struggles as well as life's happiness is something that not enough people in the world do already.
This book does have sporadic gaming content and gaming certainly saved my life more than once.
I've also heavily edited the book since it was first written to remove over 99% of the language some people might find offensive so reader / developer / publisher or press partner if you're simply offended because this book talks about real life (or some of that crazy mind stuff) I thank you for visiting and or any help you've given me in the past.
