Since I am determined to get 31 days of horror-related review posts in this month, and I still plan to blog as often as I can on the regular stuff, it means October will once again be a packed month.
Usually when I write posts with some negativity I tend to regret it....often soon after. I let this one slip through today and feel bad about it; I prefer not to get involved in the weird debacle of the internet culture of gaming outside the act of just embracing it whenever possible, so I feel I should redact a lot of what I said here, if only because I really don't want to start anything.
Also, I ran my Wednesday night game again and it reminded me of what I love about the hobby, which is good times, camaraderie, and wacky, unscripted adventures. That, in the end, is what really matters!
So I'm deleting the negative junk I had posted earlier. I prefer not to contribute to that sort of nonsense, anyway.
Keeping this part, though: it's just a "day in the life" moment:
I was walking around the mall with my son, who is an unabashed people-watcher and also, it turns out, a chick magnet. "They did not dress like that in my day," I told him. "You are going to be so lucky when you're old enough. Unless our entire society has some sort of puritanical uprising in the next eighteen years, your adult life is going to be a lot of fun, although we'll have to talk about that when the time comes. Gotta learn some basics, like language, and walking, first."
His response was, "lalalala, dada" and then he smacked me in the face while laughing hysterically because that's the funniest thing ever.
