Bret is a lot of things to me. First and foremost, he’s my spouse. He’s also my very best friend, closest confidant, business partner, idea-bouncer-offer, travel buddy, co-pilot, encourager, pusher, and more. But there is one thing that he was but hasn’t been for a very long time – my video game partner.
A year or two into our marriage, we started playing Lego Star Wars together. It was so much fun and we would regularly stay up late to play. But as we played, tensions grew because of the gameplay. Basically, sometimes he would be on one side of the area and I would be in the other, and the game would pull the other player. Not fun if you’re trying to work on something! So I continued on with my Lego game love, playing almost every one that has come out since then, including Dimensions.
Since I play all of the games, and I can get them from the library, I put in a request as soon as I can. Lego Incredibles has been on my list since I heard about it (why yes, I do follow a Lego Dimensions/Lego games video game Facebook page), the hold request took a good month to go through. There might be some delay to the library, but that’s ok with me to save some money! I finally got the game in and worked through a few levels. Last night, I made a comment to Bret about maybe playing with me. Friends, oh friends, he said yes!
What followed was hours of glee. I forgot how much fun it is to play a video game with Bret. Especially one that we both enjoy and aren’t just playing for the spouse’s benefit (ha ha, just kidding, not even that happens). It was such a sweet time together and I can’t wait to play again.
