So Saturday I have plans to take the hubster out to for his birthday and PC as charming as he CAN be when he WANTS something ...is not invited! Actually the beauty of my idea is "No Kids Allowed"! Whoooooo where do I sign up for more places like that? Anyways we wont be gone but a few hours and it's mid day and my dilemma is......what do I do with PC?
He of course is balking at any ideas of him having to go somewhere other then having his ass planted in his computer chair! And really you'd think I had 4 heads if I even thought to utter the word babysitter.....as if....I mean seriously he is almost 12!! Sure we leave him alone for a hour here or there, he is almost 12 after all! And it's not like I am worried he'd burn the house down, or have wild party's or be looking for boobies on the Internet. No I know exactly what he'd be doing....all he ever wants to do.......he'd play "Minecraft". While skyping with his other buddies who also have their ass planted in a chair when it's gourgeous outside! It's always "Minecraft this, Minecraft that". Usually he will start his conversation with "This one time in Minecraft" and I totally hear ....."This One Time At Band Camp"!
I have not figured out the fascination with Minecraft yet, have you seen the graphics? Over the holidays at gamestop they had a "Minecraft Creeper Box" whatever the hell that is? Anyways it was a square box, with green blocks and cut out eyes...they wanted $20 bucks for it. The conversation went pretty much like this....
PC: That's so cool I have to have one
ME: Um NO - not happening
PC: But I have to get it
ME: It's a cardboard box- we can stop by the post office and get one for free and I'll paint green squares on it and cut out eyes
PC: Ughhhh Mom I'm serious
ME: Me too, it's a freaking card board box what the hell do you plan on doing with it?
PC: Duh...I'd wear it
ME: Yeah I can totally see that would happen!
PC: I would while I am mining
ME: It's a cardboard box with eyes cut out of it....it's $20 bucks ....and not happening! It's time to go!
SALES GIRL: But it's made with really steady cardboard and it's cool!
Pretty sure the look on my face is what made her decide she'd be much better off with helping someone else....anyone else...but me! Wise choice grasshopper!
I'm positive that if we left for several hours or days, the little Prince would not even realize we had left, well until he was hungry, humm not even sure if he'd notice then! Last week I came home to his buddy on my computer out here in the craft room and PC in his room and they were playing with each other in their Minecraft world??Are you kidden me?? Silly me I thought they could both hang out together in the 3-D world like...I dunno...............in the same room!!!
