Game Girl

Several years ago my daughters got a Gameboy. (How come girls didn't get Gamegirls? I suspect they would have been pink and glittery and played non-violent games. Remember the dish scrubbing gadget, Chore Girl? Oh yes.) Anyhow, the girls played a bunch of games on their Gameboys that were beyond me and then they showed me Tetris. I was hooked. I mean hooked. I played in the wee hours of the night to make sure I retained the number one spot on the high scores. I dreamed Tetris. One night Julia and I talked all night, literally all night while I played Tetris. The sun came up and we just kept on talking and I kept on playing. Fortunately, my addiction was shortlived. But when Jerzy showed me this video I was anything but an impassive observer. I watched intently, happily, occasionally uttering a derisive yelp, Quick, flip it! Oh no! Whew. Game Over.

I haven't dared open that video, but I did want to say thanks so much for all the notes and caring. You and your blog are much appreciated. :)
