It was jokingly suggested that one of my nights this week was spent rewriting the policy docs I will be working on.
It’s a project I am involved in and passionate about – and since I use and enforce it on a daily basis, I am a Subject matter expert on it, and kind have been formatting it in my head and doing bits and pieces on it already, but my reply was
Nope, I went home and killed people ( In pvp) .
Because it was sadder to admit to working from home then it was to be gaming.
Some of them are console gamers or ex Wow people, one or two may kind of understand. I perhaps should have said ” I went home and ganked people” but yeah even then that said with a wrong inflection would have sounded very wrong, and my last attempt at explaining that ended up with blank looks and this after I was trying to explain.. It’s like Frag.. but not in a FPS
That I had played the sims and Zoo tycoon ( only the first one) seemed to be a redeeming quality, and the fear that I had violent tendencies was somewhat quashed.
But there are other things you shouldn’t answer when asked” so what did you do last night”
“I did some herbing”
“I was making flasks”
“Cooked some buff food”
” I killed a boss”
” I died 20 times wiping on progression attempts”
” I kept dcing”
” have almost 100,000 honor kills”
“I did battlegrounds, arena, raiding”
“Sat in SW and afk’d”
“Did the Love is in the Air dungeon”
“I’m playing a priest”
We really do speak another language.
