I Played a Video Game Today!

I’d become a little resentful that I felt like I “had” to completely give up this perfectly reasonable hobby that lots of people enjoy.

But my wife reminded me that I have the time if I plan and make the time. And so tonight, I made the time to play a video game.

And it felt good.
