a proud husband

I was having a cup of coffee with my friend Joyce the other morning, and my husband wandered in and interrupted us.

"Did Carole tell you she reached level 70 on World of Warcraft?"

Joyce rolled her eyes and said, voice dripping with sarcasm, "You must be so proud."

The Sober Husband answered quite seriously, "It gives me something to brag about around the office."

I must delurk to say congratulations. My 17-year old is up to level 60. He is trying to get a new mount, I think he said it was ostrich-like, and pink? My 12-year old is only up to level 30 on his brother's account. He just got his own account today so he has to start all over again! It keeps them off the streets.

LOL. I can totally see him saying that!

My best friend likes to tell me that WOW doesn't make her a total geek, and besides, she can put "guild leader" on her resume.

I hardly think it was *dripping* with sarcasm. Tinged, I would say.

Anon, are you suggesting IN ANY WAY that drama and overstatement occur on this website. FIE, and SHAME ON YOU. THE VERY NERVE!!! May the rath of Lola rain upon you. (No friends in hell FOR YOU!)

Heh, Silliyak, your comment made me actually laugh out loud.

I think that Anon was Joyce, and it was dripping, honey, dripping. Not tinged, dripping. Joyce is a person who lives life to the fullest, and when she turns to sarcasm, it is not a subtle tinging.

But I think Joyce can rest secure. Lucy likes her and has not yet sentenced her to hell without any friends there.

Dear Smalltownmom, he probably has a regular mount and is working towards his elite mount (which is much faster than the regular mount). Either that, or he wants a mount from another race and is working upon becoming exalted with that race so he can get the mount affordably. I want that bird mount myself, but I went with wolves instead (my racial mount) as it was cheaper and easier. I now have my gryphon, my flying mount, and the next stage is the elite flying mount (flies faster). Oh, Warcraft, such a demanding mistress.

This is part of a humorous email I just got...
1 . Long back, a person who sacrificed his sleep,
forgot his family, forgot his food, forgot laughter were called "Saints"

But now they are called..

"IT professionals"
