Maybe that didn’t come out the way I meant it...what I meant to say is, I’m addicted to Bookworm.
I’ve been playing it all weekend on the computer and I cannot stop. Just one more level, just one more five-letter word, I promise! Sunday, we didn’t eat dinner until 7:00 pm because I had made it all the way to level 15 and I had to keep going.
I don’t play a lot of games anymore, because I just don’t have time and because this is what happens to me. I can’t stop.
The up side is, when the kids catch me playing, they help me, so I get them sucked in too. Anything that will encourage DS to spell. The downside is, DH also hovers over my shoulder while I’m playing and he coaches – until I want to kill him.
“No no NO! Not that one – look – there’s B E A M – that’s four letters, take that one.”
“You gotta watch those three letters words, you know.”
“No, not that – use the Q! Use the Q!”
He makes me want to run over his toes with my desk chair.
I need an intervention. I should have been writing Sunday afternoon. Instead I sat around listening to a little green worm tell me ‘Good job!” every time I used the Q. I guess maybe I just needed some positive reinforcement, even if it comes from a worm. ;)
