More dinner delays on tap. He is gearing up for GOW3.

Not so long ago, my  husband said, “I can’t.  I’ll die!” when I told him dinner was ready.  See: Honey, dinner is ready.  I can’t, I’ll die.

I’m bracing for another round of this.

“My brother just sent me a message about scheduling time to play Xbox.”

“What?” (this is me)

“Gears of War 3 is coming out soon.  We need to practice.  He says we should schedule a time once a month to play.”

“Oh my God.” (this is me)

“What?  You schedule time to do stuff with your girlfriends.”

You know my husband is 100% true to himself when he knows I blog about marrying an Xbox dork and he still has comments/questions like this.   To use the web term-au-moment, this is “authentic”.  At the same time I realize that I’m also being a bit of a hypocrite (“A New Decade.  Another Day of Kung Fu Panda”, Jan. 2010).
