Scene: 5 minutes ago in our kitchen
Aimee: [walking out solemnly after reading the morning news on the internet, turning Bryan around to face me and rubbing up and down on his arms] “Babe, I just want you to know it’s going to be OK. Really, things will just go on, just as they always have, OK? But I have to tell you something.”
Bryan: [blink blink blink]
Aimee: “The co-creator of Dungeons and Dragons has died.”
Bryan: [Loudly using the voice of semi-retarded boxer Spinner Dunn from Death to Smoochy – one of the best movies ever] “Yeah!!! I know!!!”
Aimee: “YOU DO?”
Bryan: [taking on the voice of a pompous British professor] “Why yes! He died yesterday and was playing D&D up until last Tuesday, of course. He had been suffering from health problems for years, you know…”
It went on for about 5 more minutes but I will spare you.
We are holding a candlelight vigil in my part of the country.
I’m so emailing this post to my boyfriend.
I love Bryan.
I try to explain things like this to my wife, and all I get is a blank stare and her trying to understand what I’m saying…
nerdspeak != common tongue
I wonder what level he was…hahahaha
I’m just glad he didn’t make the joke about him crit-failing his saving die roll. ‘Cause I’m already sick of that joke.
Are we married to the same man? I got an e-mail this morning that said this “Einstein, MLK, Gandhi and now Gygax… All the great 20th century visionaries are now gone.”lol
Geekdom gone wild!
Haha! Very cool, very geeky 🙂
Do people still play D&D?… I’m just a WoW whore myself… 😉
wow… that’s just…. tragic LOL
AllStarMe – Flagler in St. Augustine. 🙂
That is cool that you know… but honestly…when I first started reading…I thought for sure it was about the election results from yesterday! LOL
Ha! Me too! (the election results)
Oh that’s funny.
It’s a nerd thing I guess.
what a nut.
Daniel broke the news to me last night since he’s our gamer in the family and on top of such things.
I haven’t told my son yet. I haven’t the heart.
Did you go to UCF?
Geek. Adorable geek.
i will have to break the news to my husband, although as a news geek he probably already knows.
Scott and others… I did try to set it up to him like it was election news – good catch! 🙂
THAT is seriously hilarious.
