I would like to preface this with a statement. I think we are equal on this subject. I only make the argument to show that there is little difference between the two. Thank you.
Ok, so the other day Nik informed me that in a while (possibly a year or so) there would be another WOW (World of Warcraft) type game coming out that he wanted to play. If you don't know WOW, that is fine, I actually envy you a little. The post should still make sense with out the knowledge of Hit Points, Mana, and Quests.
I told him that was fine, I just wanted him to put a limit on how long he played each day so that I would not lose him for days at a time, to this game. He said he would, but said that he would still want to play it all the time. I reminded him of the days of WOW when we were dating and how little I got to see of him when he was on a high level quest or playing online with friends. He laughed and said that it was like when I watched Gilmore Girls. I laughed and said that it was no where near like when I watched Gilmore Girls.
To make an already long story shorter, the basic argument from Nik was that yes, he may play games a lot, but at least he changes up the games. He doesn't jut play one game all the time. Sometimes its a video game like Madden, or Rock Band, or Ping Pong. And sometimes it is a computer game like Age of Empires or ....(sorry Nik, I can't really think of any of your other computer games). But I ALWAYS watch Gilmore Girls. Nothing else.
I laughed at that, because I watch tons of other shows! Trust me, I watch a lot of TV. He said I didn't watch any new shows, but I am watching the new episodes of One Tree Hill and America's Next Top Model with Vivian every week. I even get out the house to do it. Plus, I watch a bunch of shows on the Style Network, like Clean House, or How Do I Look, and on TLC like What Not to Wear. And I have developed a taste for the BBC as well, I like You Are What You Eat and Bargain Hunt. I very rarely watch two of these shows in a row, and honestly, I don't want to. I get bored.
We argued back and forth about whose time-passing habit was the least pathetic. I talked about how he is basically dead to me when he plays games, and how I will always change the channel if I am watching a show Nik doesn't like that has more than 10 minutes left. He talked about how he will play the games I like, or don't hate as much when I am there watching, and will play on the computer so that I can watch TV.
I really think that we are even on this one. We just like to argue. What do you think?
