Yes, I Am A Great Big Kid

At my work, there is a particular student who likes to discuss computer games with me when he visits my office. I've told him all about GuildWars, and he has been telling me about Runescape & some others. He asked me if I would sign up to play Runescape, and I told him that because my playing time is so limited, I really only play GuildWars when I can play online. He asked me if it was due to my work paperwork, and I told him that it was not that, but the things I need to do at home. I guess he hadn't noticed all the kid-pictures on my wall, or hadn't really registered them, because he asked me, sounding fairly surprised "You're a mom?". Just the way he said it made me aware that he didn't realize how old I am. I said "P, I'm almost 40". He said "Wow, but you still act like a 13-year old." :-D Now, coming from some people, this could have been an insult, but he meant it as a compliment. Then he told me his mom is that way, too. Still acts like a kid, and is fun. So that kinda made my day. Thanks, P!

Janet - I agree. And to a 13-year old, (almost) 40 is seriously old - I love the look on some of the kids' faces when they find out how old I am - lol

Some of the best! Lots of people end up meeting really great friends through games (blogs, too!), and I've met some wonderful people. One guy in particular really knocks my socks off, though... :-)
