So I guess it’s only fair to share his side of it. He likes video games:
[COLOR=Red][B]Him:[/B][/COLOR] Hey, check out the car I just bought, it can go (insert absurd number) miles per hour! And look at the paint, I can change it to ______ color. And the rims! Man, look they have (insert unknown brand here) and…OH, OH _________ (insert another brand name here)!
[COLOR=Red][B]Me:[/B][/COLOR] (glancing up from my knitting in the general direction of the t.v.) Yeah, cool.
[B][COLOR=Red]Him:[/COLOR][/B] No, look right here, I can put (blah, blah, blah) on the car and (blah, blah, blah, blah)
[B][COLOR=Red]Me:[/COLOR][/B] (looking at the t.v. just long enough to convince him I’m interested) Yeah, that’s awesome.
[COLOR=Red][B]Him:[/B][/COLOR] OMG, check out this replay!! Oh, OH MAN that is so freaking cool, I just won _______ (insert absurd amount of fake video game money).
[B][COLOR=Red]Me:[/COLOR][/B] It’s very cool, but I’m trying to count these stitches right now, so can I look at that stuff later.
[B][COLOR=Red]Him:[/COLOR][/B] How can you NOT like this…(getting distracted due to the highly intense racing game)…mumble, mumble.
[B][COLOR=Red]Me:[/COLOR][/B] (about 10 minutes later he’s still mumbling, and glancing back looking astonished that I’m not fascinated by his racing game) Are you winning? I know you’re winning…(I trail off as I lost count of my stitches, have to stop knitting in the middle of the row, go back and recount my stitches. I regain my count)…you’re so good at that game…
[B][COLOR=Red]Him:[/COLOR][/B] Man, you’re not paying attention, just knit.
[B][COLOR=Red]Me:[/COLOR][/B] (I hear him say knit and think, hunh, he finnally wants to look at my knitting, he’s interested) Hey, look at this stitch! <----- refer to conversation at the top of this thread.
