That makes a lot of sense. No time to deal with real life or even want to be in the real world would end most marriages.

I like my me time, and I like to not think of real world events when I have that time, but you gotta take care of the present before you can get to the other stuff.

How can he play that much without getting sick? I can only play for up to 2 hours myself before my eyes start to hurt.

My husband doesn't play video games...thank goodness for that because I'd divorce him in a heartbeat if he did take up that pasttime.

I can take a lot of crappola from him...but sitting in front of the boob toob with a controller in his hand would make me want to smash a game system into a million little pieces and throw his arse out.

He's an avid reader, so I guess it's sort of related to that. There have been times in the past when I've called him over to help me with something and I'll get "just a minute" and I know what he's doing. I think he's up to 250 words at this point.
Lol. That's my current app addiction.

He didn't get 250 words in one 3 minute game did he????!

Yes, I believe so. eta: let me go check his computer to confirm. That's points and it's 227. So, however many words that lead up to 227.
