Get Off My Lawn

I can't tell if he's laughing or crying.

Nerdaphobia

500 plus detailed pages of glorious information.

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.

  1. Without family members to call us out on our delusions of grandeur, how would we ever keep it real? Sounds like Maureen does her job thoroughly and effectively. Go Maureen!

    Sam rented me the new Star Wars game from Redbox tonight. That’s how it’s done! I’ll have to checkout Fallout 4 if it becomes available. All your talk has made me interested.

    • I could go on for days about this game. It is awesome and massive. I’ll probably be playing it for a few months, like six maybe, so it is an amazing value for dollar. I’ve thought about getting Star Wars but I wouldn’t get around to playing it for quite some time.
