You’ll be Reading About Our Gaming a Lot…

my actual resting face

Statistically, you don’t actually know me or my husband.  That’s okay, because if you did know us I probably wouldn’t like you.

 

Wait.  That wasn’t really my point.  Let me back up, start over.

 

You don’t actually know us, but trust me: we’re gamers in this house.  As proof of this, I submit a sampler of conversations that happen around here, conversations that only happen in a gamer house, with a gamer couple raising a wee mini-gamer.

 

ME:  I don’t think I’m playing my new game right
HIM:  Really? Did YOU get stuck in autorun… BACKWARDS? (glares at his new game)
ME:  No, but I’m pretty sure I just got eaten by a dragon… tough to tell though, because it froze up right at this point (gesture at screen with fire and an ominous shadow engulfing our intrepid hero)
HIM:  You win

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HIM:  Hey honey?
ME:  Can’t talk, busy stealing everything that isn’t nailed down
HIM:  K…Don’t forget to loot the bodies
ME:  I’m on it

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ME:  I just want to try out different things, you know?
HIM:  Well, I wouldn’t recommend that you tank
ME:  (joking) You’re just saying that because you wouldn’t trust me to tank.
HIM: 
ME:  Wait, I was joking, but then you got all quiet… oh my god, you really don’t trust me!
HIM:  I just don’t think it would be a good fit…
ME:  AND WHY NOT?
HIM:  Because your response to getting hit is to run away.
ME:  … true. Okay, fair enough.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HIM:  21 minutes I waited for you!
ME:  (frantically pointing at Nifty Chart) I made a potion of invisibility! What did you do?
HIM:  Apparently I drank one!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ME:  It occurs to me that I made a character that looks kinda like me, and YOU made a character that looks kinda like a crack dealer.
HIM:  I chose a random appearance.
ME:  You “randomly” chose the one that looks like a crack dealer.
HIM:  I wouldn’t buy crack from that guy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

HIM:  (via skype call) Bio break!

ME:  Hey, what do you think of-
HIM:  (from some distance) I SAID I’M BIO-ING!  That means I’m AFK!  Gah, it’s like you don’t speak nerd or something!
ME:  …
HIM:  Okay, yeah, you can facebook that

ME:  (under my breath) Don’t think I won’t

So if you’re out questing and see an obvious couple standing there arguing… it’s probably not us, really.  But you could ask, and that would help make us famous!
