The way things are

Life is a really hard game. The pieces keep falling out of those teeny little cars!

This morning as I was getting ready

I was thoroughly amused by a conversation I overheard in the next room. Keep in mind that Mother is 48 years old. She is one of the most mature people I know. She is organized, sophisticated, and usually has a work-first-play-later attitude. Handsome is 16. He usually puts off doing anything productive.

Mother: Ooo I have time to practice one song on Guitar Hero before I go to the store! [enters game room and begins playing]
Handsome: I need you to move your car so I can run some errands.
Mother: Hold on just a minute. I'm almost done.
Handsome: [sighs] All right.

[Five minutes later]

Handsome: I really need you to move your car so I can go!
Mother: Come on, I just want to finish this.
Handsome: Okay, but be quick!

[Another couple of minutes]

Handsome: Mom! I need you to move your car! Right now!
Mother: Okay okay I just finished.

I'm not going to lie: I'm addicted too.

I think it was really you, and not your Mom. I just don't believe it.

Also, Katamari Damacy. Try playing it. It is also quite, quite addictive. I'm about to get my folks hooked on it.
