world of warcraft widow
Patrick is hooked on WoW. For a few weeks now he's been going down to the basement nearly every night after the kids go to bed. Oh sure, he comes up once in a while for snacks or whatever else he might be in the mood for (wink) but he always scurries right back down there, doing whatever it is he does until the wee hours of the morning.
At first I would go down to put a load of laundry in or something and would catch him whispering quietly under his breath. Wow (get it? WoW), I thought, he's really getting into this. I was a little worried but told myself it would pass. It didn't. Boy was I relieved when I found out that he wasn't talking to himself but to his good buddies, Jon & Erik. See, they live in Mpls. and he lives here but with the amazing WoW technology they can play together...you know, like real people! Amazing!
Anyways. That's what my husband is sucked into these
days nights. I am loving the opportunity to give him all sorts of crap but also looking forward to this little addiction wrapping up.
