I do not get the appeal of video games. I really liked Super Mario Brothers at one point, when I was like 10. I am sitting here listening to the Red Sox game on TV while P is watching something on the iPad.
Me: What are you watching?
P: A video.
Me: Yea I could tell that much. About what?
P: This video game.
Me: What video game?
P: (says something that I’ve already forgotten…mine-builder volcano eruption maybe? Is that one?) Actually it’s a video of people playing video games.
So that’s where we are?? We watch videos of people playing video games? I work in IT with a bunch of fantastically nerdy boys. And I am a huge nerd so don’t take offense here. Or take offense, I really don’t care. All I hear about all day is video games. That’s all they talk about. I’m currently on maternity leave so that I can spend 12 weeks at home being screamed at by a miniature human. I thought I had escaped the video game talk. No such luck.
Chick A, I know you’ll agree.
