Well. Isn't that special?

I have spent far too much of my time watching TDO and Jr. play video games. I had this little mental image of myself this morning as a video game character (sadly, still not as well-endowed as Lara Croft). Not so much anymore, but back in ye olde Nintendo days, you’d get an opportunity to “power up” a character before a really challenging opponent like a Level Boss. There’d be some golden floating thingy, and if you hit it, you’d get some sort of magical shield, or start glowing red, or blinking (and hence, causing kids seizures, but I digress) and as a result, you’d be able to take several more hits than usual.

Well, judging by the “power ups” I’ve gotten over the last couple of days–there’s a Level Boss coming up soon.

Pass the nachos and the controller…
