Got Brains?

Ok, so this is Kit...you might be wondering why Liberty hasn't posted in a while. She might tell you that she is busy with life, or that she is so tired after cleaning the house and doing the laundry and wrestling with the children that she is to pooped, he he he I said "poop"(reference below blog) , at night to blog. She might even throw in, just as a diversion, that she is training for a 10 mile Tough Mudder, this last is true but would be a way to distract you from what the real reason is. She would be trying to pull the proverbial wool over your eyes. After almost ten years of marriage Liberty has found something she truly is in love with...no, not me but...



I'll have to admit the game is like Electronic Meth, instantly addicting and starts to take over your life. I don't know why, maybe it's the cute little expressions on the plants' faces or the way the zombies tirelessly trudge along in their short little lives as an occasional "brains!?" escapes their zombified lips. After a few games though, you start figuring out how to get out of work and soon you are on the street corner selling pirated tickets for Battlestar Galactica on Ice to school children so you can buy other electronic devices, portable ones, so you can play the game anywhere. And thus it has my beautiful wife clasped in its deadly grasp (no pun intended). Children have been ordered off the XBOX, interrupting their gamings of Plants VS Zombies (PVZ), so she can play. A PVZ tournament has been scheduled for the "Last Day of School" party we are have at our house. Nobody but our family is invited, if we did, it would mean we have to share precious PVZ time. Even as I type, you can see I am not playing PVZ...and I have proof...



There she is playing while I blog, will you help me help her realize her problem? We have even had discussions about buying another TV and XBOX so we play two games of PVZ at the same time (ok, so not really, but it would be fun...maybe that is something I can swing to make something worthwhile come out of her addiction...hmmm). It's like a car crash and I can't turn away, just watch helplessly on the side lines. Help me, my fellow blog friends, you are my only hope... help me get her back to blogging...



...then I can get some PVZ time.

Kit...what?!! You want us to take away such a pleasure for Lib?!! Obviously, it's bringing all great joy, and to be clear... You want us to try and convince her to stop having fun to blog--so you can have fun playing the game instead??? Hmmmm, me thinks there's a problem here. ;) As much as I so verrrry much enjoy her posts, I'm not going to be the one to stand between her and her love. Sorry, brother. :)

The truth is out! That is funny! I never thought I'd see her plopped (not to be confused with pooped) down playing a video game. But in her defense, I know as a mom/wife/homemaker myself, I need brain-dead activities like T.V., video games, Internet, etc. because I have precious few brain cells left after having kids.

Oh that's great! I would never convince her to do otherwise, she needs to have that fun in her life, besides I am addicted to Wii Mario right now...

Ahhh, Kit, you made my day! Not because I want you to take my sister's beloved PVZ away from her (really, though, Lib? I didn't think you had a gamer in you. No judgement or anything (heaven knows Spence could tell stories about me and solitare)...I'm just surprised is all), but because you're so darn funny.

I vote you buy a 2nd tv and resign yourself to a wife-less existence.
