I will preface this by saying that my in-laws are absolutely wonderful people. None of you have in-laws as awesome as they are. That being said, my father-in-law is a very old-school, hunt-fish-camp, ganje-smokin hippy. My mother-in-law is a japanese farm girl who does a lot of tai-chi and guided meditation. Both of my in-laws are somewhat fearful of technology, and vidya is probably, in their eyes, a tremendous waste of time (why waste your time with a computer game when you could spend it drinking, amirite?).

As a result, I don't really spend a lot of time trying to explain the Destiny t-shirts I wear in our cohabitated space, and on the whole, I keep the gaming to myself.

We good on the setup? So I'm out to dinner tonight with my lovely but not entirely understanding in-laws, having a nice time at the sports bar. It not being a sporting night, one of the tv's is dedicated to music videos. Half way through my pizza, I hear my father-in-law say, "Is that fucking Paul McCartney?" I turn around in my chair to look at said television.


I shit you not.

I turn back to him. "Why yes it is," I say.

"What the fuck am I seeing here?" he says. I look down at my t-shirt.

I'm from backwoods Mississippi folk. My parents didn't get a "answering machine" until probably 2005 or later. They all believe gaming is a total waste of time, but watching golf for 4 hours on the weekend is totally cool (and I agree, nothing will put you to sleep like a guy whispering softly while gentle breezes and birds chirping play in the background).

I commented in a post a few days back about comparing gaming to hunting. I can sit in a tree stand for 8-10 hours with little to no movement staring into the woods and that is somehow better than sitting in front of a tv.

Yeah, my parents think gaming is a waste of time too, but for entirely different reasons. They are the kind of people who never relax more than enough time to watch Jeopardy a few times a week.

I'm visiting family out of state and I noticed my teenage cousin has a copy of Halo in his room.

"Oh, dude! Halo! I love Halo! Got two controllers?!"
"Nope."
"Oh."
"I don't even like Halo anymore."
"Well, have you tried Destiny? Best game I have ever played!"
"Yep."
"What did you think?"
"It sucked and I sold it."
"You're retarded."
"You're balding."

Not as good as the teabagging guy, but still.

You should have gotten some friends and teabagged him.

As a bald person, I always recommend shaving the dome. Takes away people's ammunition.
