When I was in… I’d say 5th grade, my cousin/BFF spent over 12 hours playing this game. Not kidding.
That day was glorious. We didn’t fight over the controller like we normally did and the thing didn’t freeze up on us too much - I think only 3 times.
We beat the game so many times. The only reason we stopped playing was because we heard her mom getting up to go to work the next morning. She had already yelled at us to stop playing when we ate dinner and when she made us brush our teeth for bed, so we didn’t want her to shit a brick if she saw us still playing at 5am.
We just could.not.stop. The music was just.so.whimsical. We had to get every.single.fat.Kirby. We needed to eat.every.thing. We needed to use.fireballs. We needed to catch.every.single.egg. We needed to get.UFO.Kirby. We needed to get.UFO.Kirby.again. We needed to beat.the.entire.game.with.UFO.Kirby. We needed to kill.every.thing.with.only.Kirby’s.breath.
That was our thing, we’d play one game the entire night until our eyes dried up and turned red… and then never play it again. I got to level 25 in Tetris - the speed doesn’t increase after level 29. I was like 10 years old. I was 10.
Why does everyone say “house-wife” or “house-husband” when “House-spouse” is not only gender neutral, but also RHYMES?
the prof asks the important questions.
Wait, spouse rhymes with house? I always pronounced it ‘spooze’ in my head /o\ WHY IS YOUR LANGUAGE SO WEIRD!!!
Because English beats up other languages in dark alleys, then rifles through their pockets for loose grammar and spare vocabulary.
