In Honor of the Gamer-Friendly Wife (or other Significant Other)!
With Valentine's Day coming up soon, I wanted to take a moment and mention how great it is to have a "gamer-friendly wife".
The amount of bull$%^& she puts up with is simply amazing, including (but not limited to):
-Several tons of Gaming books cluttering the house.
-Several libraries worth of scifi, fantasy, and history books cluttering the house.
-Me typing away at the blog, message boards, and projects until the wee hours.
-Me constantly talking about all of the above.
-Often devoting at least one night a week of our busy lives to a gaming or writing group.
-Helping to rear children that are starting to exhibit signs of wanting to paint miniatures (God help us).
-Me driving off to other states to enjoy games and conventions.
-Going with me to see yet another bad science fiction flick.
-Humoring my idea of a date night being walking around a huge bookstore (ok, she like this too, but still its no sunset walk on the beach) with a cup of coffee.
-Having to know how to separate my toys from the kids'.
-Helping to rear children who are starting to exhibit signs of not wanting to take their toys out of the wrapping because then they're less collectible (God help us some more).
-And so on, ad nauseum!
So thanks, hon!
Anyone else with a gamer-friendly significant other, please give them a shout-out in the comments section :)
