on my nintendo switch there is a mammoth on my new horizons island. or at least, i have to assume that's what he's meant to be. he wears a leopard-print tunic one-shoulder flintstones-style & his name is tucker. tucker in english, hajime in japanese. did you know that hajime means one? or first? the wikia says that perhaps he is called that since he is the last of his kind. extinct & trapped on my island with sheep & horses & hedgehogs & cats & the knowledge that he is the only relic of a bygone time. the loneliest thing about tiggers is that i'm the only one, tigger says in the tigger movie. hajime — i cannot think of him as tucker — likes historical furniture in pocket camp, and all he asks from your low-poly player character in happy home designer is a fresh start. the wikia says he is lazy. that his best skill is oversleeping. every time i load up the game i wonder what it is like to wake up after an ice age. the wikia says he wants to become an archaeologist. i want to sit him down on my wild log bench and look him in the eye and say: hajime, it's not worth it. it's not worth it.
