I wanted to blog about what I did over the weekend but I realized that I did very little. My weekend was doomed the minute I decided to go buy this XBOX game that I waited so long for.
You know how it is that I used to find it ironic that when I was young I craved having an XBOX or Playstation but my parents never wanted to buy me one. Then when I got older and started earning my own money, I could afford to buy one but I can't seem to find the time to play it?
It's called Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and I'm secretly glad that they come up with a sequel to this franchise only once a year or something because I think its existence seriously affects my life and turns me into a useless couch potato.
Allow me to illustrate that with some actual conversations between Princess and me that took place over the weekend. This happened after I bought the game on Saturday afternoon and went home straight to play it. Princess had to go to work (yes on a Saturday) so for the first time in my life I gave her my car keys and told her to drive herself.
She said "Really? You trust me?"
and I replied "Yes I do"... when what I really meant was "Yes... I really need to play my game now. I can't wait".
When Princess was out
*My mobile phone rings. I answer it while pressing it between my ear and my shoulder so that I could still keep both hands on my XBOX controller.
Princess: Baby... I just got into an accident. I banged your car.
Me: Oh really? Ohh... okay.
Princess: *waits for more serious response*
*"more serious response" doesn't come*
My mind first starting thinking "Oh shit.... she bang my car? How like that?"
but my video game influenced mind eventually settled on:
"Ah nvm. I'll deal with it right after I keel these muthafuckers!!! BRING IT ON ASSHOLESSSS!!!!!" *rat tat tat tat tat (game machine gun fire).
Princess: Okay just joking haha. What are you doing now?
Me: Playing game.... FUK LARRR I DUNNO WHERE THEY'RE SHOOTING ME FROM!!!
Princess: Oh ok... talk to you later lar. Byebye!
Me: Bye! Love you.
After Princess Comes Home
Princess: Still playing ar?
Me: Baby baby!!! I'm so glad you're here! I'm hungry :(
Princess: So go eat lah...
Me: Cannot cannot... playing online with my bro now. The game cannot pause wan. Can you go get me the biscuit in the fridge?
Princess: Ok.... *opens fridge* Which biscuit??? The Oreo?
Me: Nonono... got another one. Brown colour and square shape wan.
Princess: *Brings the biscuit over and puts it on the table.*
Me: Baby can you do me a favour?
Me: Could you feed me the biscuit? I got no hands. My hands are on the controller.
Princess: *annoyed* Fine... *removes biscuit from wrapper and attempts to put biscuit into my mouth.
Me: Eh wait wait too big for me to eat one shot lar. Wait let me bite half off first. *takes the first bite*
Princess: *waits impatiently for me to finish the first half of the biscuit with the second half in her hand. All the while with my eyes not leaving the screen and hands not leaving the XBOX controller*.
Me: Umm ummm *opens mouth indicating I want the second piece*
Princess: *Shoves second piece into my mouth*
Me: Some more some more...
*whole process is repeated a few more times until she gets impatient and goes into the room*.
So that everyone... is why video games are bad for you.
