My game guide lay open on the dining room table. This is where I like to conduct my “research.” I pore over the tome, reading glasses perched on my nose, gleaning the wonders and bounty of the Wasteland.
Cue the record needle being scratched across the vinyl.
Maureen: You wanna move your nerd shit so I can read the paper?
I shake my head sadly and make space for the paper to be laid out. In the face of adversity I will continue to study.
Earlier in the week:
Me: Oh my God, I love this game. It is massive. Just massive. It’s the kind of game I will play at least twice. Maybe even three times.
Maureen: Hopefully, though you might play it three times, I’ll only have to hear about it once.
I have to admit this was a good one. Zing, pow. I laughed.
