r.i.p. Hershey

Hershey is dead! :-( I'm not exactly sure why. He woke up at 10 a.m. this morning and I waited a few minutes before coming to pay attention to him, and when I did, there was a little halo over his head! Perhaps he took ill in the night because I forgot to turn off the air conditioner. Anyway, I've hatched a new Tamagochi guy and named him Milquetoast. I've decided to try a little experiment with Milquetoast because I'm really curious about his programming algorithm...I'm going to feed and bathe him when necessary, but not play with him at ALL. Will he die from lack of attention? Or grow up to be a hardened, cynical Tamagochi who has difficulty in sustaining a meaningful relationship? Time will tell...
