Weekend Quencher 12/02/11 – The Good Life, Edition


Times are hard, there’s no doubt about it. Now more than ever, one must work extra to carve out a living, and put in double time to “live it up”. You may ask, ‘so what’s with the title, Ernice?’ to which I’ll simply say, I’m a gamer. Gamers are just like everybody else: we work, have great social lives, play sports, drink fermented liquids and, of course, have beautiful women and men (girls are gamers too). But there’s another thing the gamer boasts, and that’s the ability to have fun in any season.

Yes. Whether good or bad, we have a place to escape. When things get tough on the job, we go home and pop in Uncharted 3. If the woman, or man, is behaving bad, we take out our rage on enemies across the globe. We have something others can’t boast of. We’ve learnt to immerse ourselves in virtual worlds and at the same time keep a normal perspective. Indeed, gamers live the good life.

It’s the weekend, folks, mind sharing what you’re up to?
