That Narrow Window of Opportunity

Overheard at Bo’s birthday party:

We use to play Dungeons and Dragons maybe four times a week, we’d rush over to his house straight after school

….

You know, if we’d had internet porn back in the day, I’d never have bothered with D&D.

Bonus piece of social interaction advice:

  • Acknowledging that you watch internet porn – perfectly acceptable and unremarkable.
  • Mentioning specific sites ( Yeah, I used to go there until I mistyped and got google’s do you feel lucky result…) – somewhat uncomfortable.
  • Going into the pros and cons of downloads vs. streaming… (but I need to set up my playlist…) – time to change the subject.
