I’m preparing to make one final effort before finishing the semester. This will require intense psychological hygiene, which is why tonight I’m playing my favorite Kindle game. Unfortunately, I have reached a point where the game is trying to force me to engage in sociability, inviting other players to be my friends, exchanging gifts and flowers with them, and getting them to send me love. Since this is obviously a game for little girls, I feel extremely embarrassed asking them to befriend me.
This is why I was inordinately happy to see some of my game “friends” leave a message on her wall saying that she will give birth in 6 weeks. At least, now I know that at least one of these players has reached puberty. That is a relief already.
