The Hater is about to beat this arcade game that he downloaded to his Xbox. He was an arcade junkie when he was a kid. Even when we started dating I can remember he and his roomate going to the mall to play games in the arcade.
He tried to get me to play, but I was a staunch Tetris girl. I only wanted to fight with boxes. This is funny because as a kid I had a Nintendo and asked for Tetris, but Mom and Dad wouldn't get it for me because they said I'd get bored with it and not play it. We had plenty of other games to play, but I wanted to move the boxes. In college I had a friend with a Tetris game, and we'd sit in the floor of her dorm room and play it for HOURS.
Someone (LV7 methinks) found me a Tetris game that would play on Windows... and in a dorm room without a television, I played that game for HOURS and HOURS. I played that version of Tetris so much that I'd go to sleep seeing boxes fall in my head. Good times.
Meanwhile, my job helping The Hater is to pick who should fight the bosses. I like to pick the yellow guy because he looks like the missing link...
There was a Tetris arcade game in the wishy-washy where The Hater did his laundry in college. One time he took me there just to beat the game - because he was angry that he couldn't beat it. He says he remembers that we "got super far" on it.
He just beat the game he was playing for the first time since he downloaded it. He's really excited. He says he and his brother used to play it on Super Nintento when they were kids, and he played it with Angry Dissenter when we were in Vegas.
Now we can conquor the game of what we'll be cooking for lunch.
