Hello everybody ,
This (past) weekend , we were invited to a Children’s birthday Computer party.
All of this confused me .
Was the child getting a computer?
Was it an online party?
Was the computer celebrating the anniversary of its’ purchase? (less likely)
The answer was none of these.
It was a party at which all of the invited children got together to play on their computers all day long.
Instead of being a little bit concerned, I was thrilled. Thrilled because I am by all accounts a little bit addicted to video games.
This little fact used to feature in the ” Cool facts about me ” box . It has since been moved to the “Embarrassing facts that I would not share with anyone I am actually close to” box that no-one opens.
What started off as the typical 80’s-90’s child playing Sega with the neighbourhood kids , turned into an adult with a monthly subscription to World of Warcraft. I’m not saying I had a problem , I’m just saying I maybe had to retake some exams because of it , and I maybe had to cancel my subscription as a result.
If this little tid-bit about me was known before I had actually been invited to the Computer Party , I’m pretty sure I would not have been invited. I took over that show. Kids played but mostly ? They watched.
Other fun facts about computer parties:
– Minutes turn into hours and no-one notices.
– No-one eats . At least none of the people playing.
– All damage caused to personal property and belongings is in-game only.
So apart from being the best thing ever (*I* had a great time) , my now adult brain tells me that computer parties are clearly the worst .
Hope you’re all having a good week and doing something real 🙂
