No work today. This could have been a day of hibernation. It wasn’t. He woke at 2 and began what he thought would be a lengthy gaming marathon. After a few hours on the computer, his game stopped abruptly when a younger sibling accidentally stepped on his power strip and he, “lost all that work.” Once upon a time, this would have caused an epic rage monster meltdown. That didn’t happen. Instead, a softly whispered rant that includes the colorful metaphors often heard during MMOGs began and has yet to stop. I liked it better when he copied his vocabulary from books.
