with my son in his room. When I was finished, I walked out into the hallway, and Lisa was playing Mario Kart with her son in his room. The four of us looked like that family in the promotional materials for Nintendo that’s having a super good time video-gaming together. It would have been a good commercial except for right after that happened I ate 40 slices of American cheese over the kitchen sink.
are both huge fans of Minecraft. Apparently when you’re an 8 or 12 year old boy and you love playing Minecraft, one of the worst insults you can hurl at one another is calling the other person a noob. I don’t know if it’s derived from newbie or what, but as soon as I heard it I took a bit of a shine to calling people noobs. Plus, I intentionally use it incorrectly as an adjective to describe them and also as an action verb to describe something that a noob might noob because it irritates them so badly. Then I walk around and tell both kids that they are the noobiest noobs that ever noobed. I even enjoy calling Lisa a noob, although I don’t get the reaction of white-hot rage from her that I get from the children, which makes it much less satisfying. Anyway, yesterday I started singing it along to The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin’ Nooby) and I can’t stop singing it and I think I heard Lisa singing it too. I’ve only been out of work for seven days and shit like this is already happening.
It’s gonna be a long recovery.
Anyway, have fun at work tomorrow, noobs.
