Just Can't do it

" Let's play Halo!" is heard in our churchhouse/ house just about every wednesday and sunday and sometimes on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. But for about two years now I have said, no I'm just not interested and this was true I can assure you. Just never been interested in blowing people up and then getting yelled at for doing so. ( ex. Brian that was cheap. or Derrick I can't believe you just did that) However last night i broke down. Brian wanted to play 8 players, 4 on 4. I was necessary for this to work. So I couldn't disappoint the boys. They rarely ask me to play. We played for an hour, not too much I suppose. But in that hour I got 2 kills and about 29 deaths if not more, maybe I quit counting. To say the least, I spent more time dead than alive. I could not for the life of me figure out the two joystick thing. People would start shooting at me and I couldn't find them and if I did I couldn't aim long enough to kill them. Anyways, it was basically an all around bad experience and I tried to be positive about it. I'm just not a Halo..er. I don't know if that will be my last time to play but it definitely didn't change my mind about the game at all. Good try boys, good try.
By the way, I say it was a bad experience but nothing is too bad of an experience when you are with good friends who love you whether you like Halo or not : )

Well thanks for ending that with a cheesy "Moral Victory" type of situation.

I did like finally getting you to play but I was not thoroughly thrilled because I felt bad about you having a bad time and I felt bad that bryan was picking on you.

But I'm glad that you at least tried it and joined in the revilry finally....
Until next time Miss Emdawg....

You'll get the hang of it.

I use to try and play my brothers video games, but I just gave up. Beleive it or not I think I was actually better at playing the Nintendo 64(wow was that a cool thing or what) than I probably am now. Merry CHRISTmas!!!

My experience was similar-kept getting shot and couldn't see who was doing it! It would take some practice...

Mom played halo! I did too, it is soooooooo fun! Or at least I thought so! Shooting people...running for your life, the adrenaline running through you, and shouting at friends, "Stop shooting me! Let me win! STOP!"
