One of the middle school students - a boy - was in my office yesterday, and seemingly out of the blue, asked me if I have a son.

I told him no, I have two daughters.

He sort of hesitated, and said "Oh... I saw the Guild Wars poster on your wall there, and thought you must have a son."

I said "That's mine! I play that game!."

I'm not sure he believed me - he left the room shaking his head. Maybe it was just that the idea of girls (really old girls) playing such an awesome game really shook up his "guy" world.

Poor kid.

I am afraid I have no idea what Guild Wars are, but good on you for showing that some things are not necessarily gender specific.

I wonder if he'll think Guild Wars is for girls now, and stop playing. ;-) I thought the sexes were more equal than when I was a kid and the line between boys and girls was clear!

Jeanie - thanks. Guild Wars is MMORPG (an online PC game), sort of like World of Warcraft, but with no subscription fees. And it rocks. :-)

Janet - I thought so, too, but apparently not. Guess I shouldn't tell that kid that I also do my own plumbing & other 'handyman' stuff, huh? LOL

Oh, definitely not! You might give him a complex. ;-)

Definitely check it out - it's an awesome, huge game, with lots to do. You can get a trial DVD:

and there's tons of game help on the wikis. :-)
