Video Game Wankers
My cousin, whose boys are a bit older than mine, enlightened me the other day about so-called play dates.
She told me that all the kids do at these parentally orchestrated get-togethers, at the current stage, is play each other's video games.
What a bunch of little wastoids, eh?
Yeah, us thirtysomethings had Atari, Intellivision, and ColecoVision to turn our brains into mush....
But these kids today are out of control; make that, THEIR PARENTS are! Who in their right mind would buy their 5 year old a game system? Yet I see this time and again.
Now that I think about it, just imagine how good some of us (West Coast Tom? Slow Rion? PrivateCaller?) would be today, after all that post-pubescent *practice*, at Decathlon!
