The Gamer in the House

Last night, as I was falling asleep, I heard the sound that I've heard pretty much every night since 1996: the "WHAM WHAM WHAM" of the spacebar on the computer keyboard. This is the sound of one of the most addicting computer games of all time: Civilization II. It dominates our household every night starting around 9 PM and continuing until 1 or 2 AM.

For 7 years now, my wife Shelly has played Civ II on a pretty much daily basis. At a rough guess, she has played the game for over 9000 hours, or about the number of hours I worked at Wizards of the Coast full-time over 3+ years.

She is, in other words, the gamer in the house. I am a piker by comparison.

Wow. Just wow.
I see that everyone was too stunned to reply. Someone has to say it: I bow before the Master.
