So, I mentioned not too long ago that Justin has been playing video games and walking on the tread mill. I also talked about the Guitar Hero game, and how it's turning my house into a rock concert hall (complete with super cute toddler!) I may have also mentioned that I just didn't get video games. I think I may have even said Justin was a geek (still true!)
Well...This week Duncan went off to Grandma and Grandpa's house, so I had a little more free time than usual. I worked on my nesting--cleaned the bathrooms, vacuumed, mopped, etc. Then I decided I needed to be more active, so I figured I would take a walk on the treadmill. Then if I got tired or needed to use the bathroom, I wouldn't have to worry about being on the opposite side of the neighborhood. I got down to the basement, and thought, "Well, I think I'll check this video game out. It'll be more interesting than looking at the wall." So, I turned it on. Justin has a game called "The Legend of Zelda" in right now. There's a lengthy prologue about people in torment being saved by a boy dressed in green. There's a period of peace, and then the dark days return, but where's the boy in green? So, then I'm taken to an island. I play a young boy (not in green...yet!) who is learning all sorts of tricks around his island. I swear, I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. My little character had to run around catching pigs. I didn't know where to take one when I got it. The options were throw and drop! I finally called Justin and said, "Where does the pig go?"
"I've got the pig, but I don't know where to take him." Giggle madly.
"Are you drinking?"
"No, I'm pregnant! I'm playing that video game!"
He did some explaining and got off the phone, so I wouldn't fall off the treadmill (I was walking this whole time.) So, now I get it. I get the video game thing. It's fun! Of course, I probably won't do the violent stuff. That's just not me. I wonder if there's a newer version of Atari's "Pitfall." Hmmm.
