Obsession. You're my obsession.

My husband is very competitive.  I've seen him in other peoples' homes with gaming consoles and I've vowed that we will never own one ourselves.  For Christmas he requested an iPod Touch, presumably for music and other various reasons, but I didn't know that he would use it to play checkers every available minute of the day.

We used to wind down at the end of the day with some pillow talk.  Now I roll over in bed to to the computerized sound of checkers being moved on the board.  Swish, swish. Swish, swish.

That's pretty funny. I think if we had any of those video games Mark would be on them all the time. I need him to finish the house first!

That just made me laugh out loud! What is it with boys/men and their video games?
