I'll just cut and paste from Mikey's:
I’m new to this forum (okay forums in general, this is my first one). I used to love the turtles when I was in high school. I remember working at McDonald’s just so I could get enough money to buy all the figures, comics, games, and come to think of it I think I even bought a turtle troll doll once or twice… weird. So anyway my high school years come to a close and I move out of my parents’ house, and forget about the turtles entirely.
Fast forward about a decade and I’m watching Saturday mourning cartoons with my son Donny (yea, yea it wasn’t intentional) and all the sudden I see them. I think they were showing the “new and improved” introduction. I was so surprised I almost chocked on my Captain Crunch! My son thought they were extremely cool (hmmm, maybe it’s hereditary). Anyway a week goes by and I can’t get
Of course I’m thinking I’m the only guy in his late twenties, holding down a job, raising a family and still gets excited about an action figure, but curiosity takes over and I get online, I find this site and realize I’m not the only one (not by far). So I browse through a few and decide to register. Well that’s my story hope you enjoyed writing it as much as I did grading it… okay so I put that on all the English reports I grade that get a D or lower. Stupid joke I know and it doesn’t apply here but anyway… wait is anyone actually still reading this, well if you are thanks for your time, and that’s my story.

Welcome to forum :) My story is very similar to yours, Only1Don? However, I am a college student that keeps my TMNT fascination a secret. But one of my former friends found out and he just laughed so much. The result was that I blushed a bright red. :lol: Since then, he has not said much about it.

Ahh... I am also a college student, but almost everyone in my building knows that I'm a TMNT fan. ;) I'm surprised with the positive reactions I get whenever someone finds out. A lot of people will say, "Wow! I remember the Ninja Turtles!"

I only get positive remarks when I tell people I'm a TMNT fan and I share with all

I wish that my friend would have respected my newly refound interest. I do not talk about the Turtles on the campus.
