Day Fourteen: A Character from Your Favourite Board Game (or Video Game).
I hate fun.
Not actually, but I do really, really dislike board games. Like, maybe in a too-intense way. My partner makes fun of me for this all the time, saying “You hate fun!”
I don’t, though! Board games just bring out a really hideous side of me. A really hideously competitive side of me. I once (years ago) stood up on a table after winning Settlers of Catan, screaming “In your FACE! In your FAAAACE!” to the losers.
The losers were my employees.
So yeah, I usually avoid board games at all cost. They make my heart rate race like whoa. It’s actually hilarious except that it gives me major anxiety!
Also, I didn’t grow up with any sort of gaming console, so I have only once in my life played a video game. My friend Alison tried to teach me how to play Super Mario. After hours, I could not even clear the first level. YIPES.
I do like playing scrabble on my phone, though. Perhaps because it’s drawn out over the course of days, my competitiveness eases up a bit.
