I could play some video games in my day: Space Invaders, Frogger, Ring King, Galaga, Pac Mac, Asteriods, Centipede, Battle Zone, and Tempest (just to name a few).

And I could work you on the computer games, too: Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Doom II, Heretic, and Command and Conquer.

My son and I just got done playing Command and Conquer – The First Decade. I got schooled. I was handed a pen and paper and asked to take notes until lunch. I got flat out WORKED by my 12 year-old boy.

And did I take it well? No. I walked away in disgust as he obliterated my base for the 10th time. I called him out aas a cheat when he beat me in Renegade.

And I threw down the final shred of my pride when I said, “Well, at least I could beat you racing REAL cars.”

Real mature.

I'm a picker. I'm a grinner. I'm a lover. And I'm a sinner. I make my music in the sun.

  1. Classic. I know exactly what you mean. Thanks for the laugh this morning and for the reminder on sportsmanship!

  2. Kids – You gotta love 'emThey continue to grow as we continue to decline. The one day they clue us on what they didn't like about us and they themselve become parents. We watch and are amused as they go through what they put us through. Our pay off? When they call and say "why didn't you just kill me when I was that age." Yes… life is so sweet!
