A: When I was 5 years old, I was bashful and, moreover, also had few friends.

Father gave me Abe a GoGo and PlayStation several days after.
He said to me " From today, however busy I may be, I promise to make time to enjoy together with you. I repent of having grieved you. "
Father and I played Abe a GoGo from the day every day. It was really pleasant.
Abe a GoGo became my important treasure.
