If there was anything that brought us together, and made our bond strong quickly, it was our mutual love for video games.
We were both World Of Warcraft players from way back. I did okay on console, but the fact that we were both Xbox fans made us a match made in gamer heaven.
Fast forward a few years, and I have started distancing myself from the gaming world. I don’t have my WoW account anymore, I played on some private servers (I know, tsk tsk) for awhile but I really just left it all behind.
Now the only games I play online are ticket2ride on a very rare occasion, and I try to keep up on my Dice with Buddies, though I’m lucky if I look once a day. I’ll admit, I still have plently of computer time between Facebook and WordPress.
I think one of the biggest reasons I’ve gained so much weight since getting married is because so much of my time was spent sitting on my butt in front of a computer.
My husband just got the new Elder Scrolls Online for the both of us. We have set up on both computers. I’m supposed to be playing right now while he’s at work, so I can catch up with him.
Here’s the thing. It’s a dirty little secret, too. I don’t really want to. I enjoyed playing Skyrim, and I would probably enjoy ESO. I just don’t enjoy gaming in general.
Besides, I have a lot of other extra-curricular activities to keep up on these days.
I just don’t know how to tell him that his wife isn’t his gaming partner anymore…..
