Afternoon Delight: Goofy Gamers Blaze Away

by Stephen Becker 13 Dec 2012 12:58 PM

Yes, just when you both go into your fated battle, swords unsheathed, a fight to the death for the Chalice of the Lion’s Blaze! — just then is always when you discover your ‘unequip’ button is stuck from the soda you spilled on the keyboard and all you can do is hop around like an idiot bunny.


Afternoon Delight is a daily diversion for when you’re just back from lunch, but not quite ready to knuckle down to work. Check back weekdays at 1 p.m. for another one.

“I too have come to obtain the powers —  of the Lion’s Blaze!”

“Unsheath swords!”

Shing. Shing.

“We are slapping swords!”

“What are you doing? Hit the ‘i’ button for inventory.”

“I’m pressing ‘i,’ dude!  Wait, you know what it is? I spilled a soda on my keys. And the ‘unequip’ button is stuck.”

Certainly the kind of conversation I often have with my nephew when we play computer games.  Enjoy.
