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?”
