Oh games with cheesy Zapp Brannigan-esque dialogue and ferocious unicorns pooping rainbows, how I love thee. But dang it you’re distracting when I’m trying to play with my new toy blog! Mr. Boyfriend has been playing this game all night and I find myself peeking from behind my laptop screen to see what silliness he’s getting into. It’s a multi-colored extravaganza of campy characters in wacky plotlines chasing the ridiculous. And it’s delightful.
It actually reminds me that sometimes we take our lives too seriously. We get so wrapped up in the daily grind, the hustle and bustle of living that we forget to laugh at the ridiculous. And boy isn’t there enough fodder out there to bust a gut at! Spend any time watching FOX opinion shows, following mortgage foreclosures, or heck, reading nutrition labels and you’ll be struggling to get out of bed in the mornings. Except through these negatives we find creativity and innovation. We get Jon Stewart, Apple Mortgage Cakes, and well, nothing is gonna make reading nutrition labels better but you get the idea.
It’s for days like today. For when my buyer’s closing didn’t happen due to a seller trying to kind-of, just sort-of commit a little bit of tom foolery and getting irritated that he got caught by the insurance company. Yes it’s these days that we need to remember that we can stop-drop-and roll to put that fire out of our minds. And sometimes that cooling draught comes from the most unexpected places. Sometimes it’s playing just beyond your laptop screen and you just need to give in and play with the silliness.
