I had children for the same reason I got married—I wanted someone to share my life with. However, that does not mean I want to spend every waking moment with them. It’s a somewhat harsh truth, but I’m honest and not afraid to share this sentiment with my family. I’m an extreme introvert, and that means that every day I need some quiet head space to process world, local, and family issues. Too much crowding means I start down a dark path of grump. Everyone in the family suffers. Last month I reviewed a meditation app to help me keep my chill. My eldest was still in school at the time. Now that we are on summer break, not only do I have to adjust to the expectations of being a constant entertainer, but they also have to adjust to spending more time with each other. I’m going to need more than a couple of minutes of meditation to see my through to the other side.
Like so many other mainstream gamers, I have been spending all of my time playing Fallout 4. There is just so much to do in this game. My son is missing still, but I’ve joined many factions, built ten communes, and romanced a journalist. For this month’s Drink Your
Comics Games, I will take you to the Wasteland for two boozy beverages.
