Conversations with a boy about today's release of Battlefield 3...

Two weeks ago:
Boy: Wouldn't it be funny if I got strep throat or something on the day Battlefield comes out?

Me: ...the only way you're staying home from school that day is if you're puking up blood.

Boy: I know! I was just saying...it'd be funny, right?

Two days ago
Boy: There's the level in Paris, and I think there's one in New York, and then when Modern Warfare 3 comes out, it's got one in Paris, one in London, and one somewhere in Germany...

Me: Someday we should visit all the cities you've had virtual battles in.

Boy: ...that'd be a long trip, Mom.

This morning:
Boy: Battlefield is really a multi-player game, Mom. It's a great game, but it just doesn't have the cinematic single-player experience you get with Modern Warfare.

Me: O.o;; *thinks* "...cinematic single-player experience"?

Do you suddenly feel strangely out-of-date?

Alternately, leave the boy at home and visit all those cities with your honey, instead.

Ha! I would take them both, but if I had to find someplace where both of those picky eaters would eat in every city, well, we'd never have anything but McDonald's, all over the world. Nothing but McDonald's.

...maybe I'll leave them both home and go by myself...

Definitely, save up the pennies and go by yourself. Life's too short to be picky about eating when everything else is new and exciting. Okay, except for that whole thing about drinking the water or the milk -- that, you might want to keep an eye on, when travelling in certain parts of the world. But aside from that, try everything at least once!

Except for the Swedish version of cheesecake. I can tell you right now that it's not worth it, but the blackberry pastries more than make up for any momentary lack.
