We heard a radio promo earlier today that featured a girl saying something along the lines of, "I sit around the house in my underwear playing video games and eating Doritos all day," in a sexy voice.
"I hope I end up with a gamer girl," Big Kid said from the back seat.
"Yeah? Or just a girl who supports you in your interests. Like the wife in King of Kong? She didn't play video games but she understood his need to be a Donkey Kong champion. That woman is a saint if you ask me, find someone like her," I suggested, referencing a documentary we saw recently.
"Yeah...it would be nice to find a girl who likes video games, though--not a lazy one, who sits around in her underwear eating Doritos all day or anything!"
"Right," I said, chuckling. "It would be fun to have someone that liked playing games with you, that would be cool."
"Don't be mad--but maybe later, when I'm older? Like, much older? Maybe then I'd want the type in her underwear. I mean, I can just see why some people would like that."
I stifled a laugh.
"Don't be mad, I'm just saying--" he went on.
"I'm not mad." I said. "As long as she likes your mother, I don't care. I really wouldn't want to know..."
"Yeah, yeah, you won't even know."
"Okay, then, well, good luck with that! I hope it works out for you! What about the Doritos?"
"Eh, yeah, I don't know about that."
At least he's got standards.
