Until now, I never...
Played Subway Surfers

Sometimes, as the day wind downs, I realize that I haven’t completed an ‘I Never’.  Sometimes I can reflect on my day and find a thing to choose from, because ultimately, depending on how you look at it, there should be many things to chose from.  But today I was stumped.

When I went to say goodnight to Nadine she was playing video games on her Kindle and she asked me if I wanted to try.  Normally I would have said ‘no thanks’ but today I decided to say yes, and make this my I Never.  She was playing Subway Surfers and she was really good at it.  Then she handed me her device and, of course, I died immediately.  So I tried again a few times, and even though I couldn’t imagine ever just wanting to play this game for fun, I thought it was so clever.  I loved the ridiculous idea of it – being chased on the tracks by a station agent and his pit-bull, dodging trains and grabbing coins.  I could see why kids love this game.  I would have loved it back in the day.  But for some reason video games just don’t do it for me any more.  I prefer a good book.  Can you say generation gap?  Good grief…
