Gamer Girl

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.

" 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."

"And mom?"


"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.

The fact that your referenced King of Kong brings me joy. Most people have never heard of it.

A movie where you experience joy//anger//affection//annoyance//sadness//laughter is ideal.

Props to you. Mad props, even.

Speaking for my people, gamer girls are awesome.

And I only ever eat chocolate topless. Because crumbs. Bleh.

Loved King of Kong! I actually have seen it twice, once on my own and then I rented it on Amazon for Big Kid to see and I watched it again. I thought it was a great documentary for a lot of different reasons and I loved Steve--so sweet and cute and kind.

Steve had a cameo in the movie Four Christmases. Did you see it?
