And it WAS too~
My nephew loved his birthday card, more than I thought he would, and Mum surprised me by buying root beer on the way home, which totally went with the card's humor!
My other nephew can't wait for his birthday because he wants to know what's going to be in his card.
I had it planned out, but decided to do something else for it.
It was going to be a Star Wars joke (I might still incorporate that
) but he loves Skyrim so much, I'm going to make it chiefly that---and now I have to go watch a ton of "lets play" youtube videos
It works better if I can experience the game's glitches for myself, so I can make better jokes.
Hm... maybe I should ask the Outhousers... ~ between being a den of nerds and having excellent humor mechanisms, that may prove fruitful (famous last words XD).
When we picked the boys up from school, I gave Zachary his card and he couldn't stop laughing.
They sat in the back seat re-reading it over and over. The best part was that I didn't show it to my Mum before I gave it to him, so he was quoting parts of it, like "strippers", "beer", and "black man", and she kept saying "what did you GIVE them?? what's IN that thing???" She read it when we got to their house and was fine with it, but the fun it played on her mind the ride home was hilarious. XD I'm so mean.
Every other day I feel so worthless, like nothing I do really matters (even when I know that's not true
) so when Zach couldn't stop laughing at the card, I felt productive.
That actually made me feel a helluva lot better about still being banned from my sister's house. I know that something I did mattered on his birthday, so I actually feel alright about not being allowed to be there. Plus, I hope he shoves that card in her face, thinking she'll like it, and it just burns her that he loves my gift so much.
Now I'm hoping to make Vincent's just as good
but he loves Skyrim and I know next to nothing about it, except for whatever it has in common with Morrowind GOTY edition...
Soo.... the next few months will involve lots of online investigation into that game~
