    Game Of Life

    | CA, USA | Boyfriends & Girlfriends, Parents & Guardians, Sons & Daughters, Theme Of The Month

    (I’m talking with my mom about my new boyfriend.)

    Mom: “What does he like to do for fun?”

    Me: “He likes to play video games.”

    Mom: “Oh, no. That’s not good. You don’t want someone who is going to waste their lives doing that. He’ll never have any time for you.”

    Me: “We both enjoy it. We play together.”

    Mom: “Still, he needs to find something else to do with his time. College-aged men are so lazy.”

    Me: “He’s putting in 40 hours a week in training for a manager position.”

    Mom: “Well, he should be like my friend and get a real job, and not play video games like a kid. My friend is worth millions!”

    Me: “What does he do?”

    Mom: “He’s a video game programmer.

    Me: “So you’re saying that the guy who programs video games, doesn’t play them?”

    Mom: “Why would he?”
