Playing video games CAN be fun. Last night, my fiend Sam Holister and I went into Newton center to meet up with some friends. After some disagreement, we all decided to get Chinese food for dinner. The food was great and we all decided that we wanted to part ways for the night (we had all seen each other a lot in the last couple of days), so, Sam and I started to walk home. When we were about half way home, Sam and I were both startled when a car started honking its horn right behind us. We turned around, and we were immediately blinded by the car’s headlights. At first, I wanted to run (only half kidding), but Sam realized that the headlights belonged to my mom’s car and yelled, “Sam, run!” I picked up on his sarcastic town and I turned, and like Sam, I saw my mom and dad laughing in the front seats of the car. I said, “Nice try bud” and Sam and I walked over the car and got in. Still kind of laughing, my mom asked a question, “We were just going to make a dessert run for your brother (they were on their way home from Boston), I am assuming you guys don’t want to come, or do you?” Just mere seconds after her offer, we both said, “Sure!” We ended up having an awesome time, enjoying ice cream cones all around! Then, we all got back into the car and drove home. When we arrived home, Sam and I rushed downstairs to the “man cave” and turned on the Duke vs. UNC. In case you didn’t already know, Duke vs. UNC is probably the biggest, most intense, and thrilling college basketball rivalry of all time. In similar fashion to the other great games between Duke and UNC, last nights game was competitive for 32 minutes, and was nothing short of “amazing!” Duke ended up winning (Yes!) And Sam and I, still hyper from the caffeine in the ice cream, decided to play NHL 14. Although, we usually don’t play video games, what would soon become of the next two hours of “gaming” is some of the greatest time I will ever share with Sam. We decided to play a seven game series of 10 minute games in NHL. Each game was so fast paced and stressful that by the end of the series (he won) we were both screaming and throwing punches. Typically, video games are not my favorite thing in the world, but when you combine them with friends, they can be awesome!
