Mr Furlong and I have long played massive online computer games. We play together. It’s always been fun.
But recently, I dumped playing the one we’ve been playing for several years, and returned to a very old game we used to play at least twelve years ago. It’s been very interesting.
Now Mr Furlong has joined me.
In a hall where we were busy fighting fierce guards, another player wanted to trade goods with me for nothing. So I accepted. He gave me a massive amount of gold, armour and a beautiful scimiter. I was well pleased and thanked him.
What are the chances of such a thing happening to two random players who just, unknown to anyone else, are husband and wife?
Yesterday, a player wanted to trade with Mr Furlong. He was given a huge amount of gold, and gold trimmed armour, weapons and other items. Of course he got thanks.
Those players that gifted us, logged out and have not been back to the game.
These massive online games are very addictive. I reckon their wives/husbands gave them an ultimatum.
“If you don’t stop playing that bloody game, I’m divorcing you!”
So they dumped their stuff and left.
How lucky were we!
