Almost as if nothing ever happened…

Athena: HeroQuest sucks


JW: Good evening to you too.


Athena: It’s a children’s game for childish people.


JW: Cool!


Athena: Some co-workers and I started a game group but all they want to play is HeroQuest. It sucks.


JW: We should trade friends! At my game club they play Carnegie. Looks convoluted and dry. No dice.


Athena: Carnegie sucks.

JW: Woah. I guess this wasn’t the best time to re-open our office. I thought with me clean from medication, and you landing a regular 9 to 5 job -


Athena: My new job sucks.


JW: - we probably could work on the website once again. Have you seen any interesting games lately? At one table at our game club they were playing Merchants of the Dark Road. I almost ordered it, it’s so pretty! 😍 But it’s also expensive, and I should stop buying games just for their good looks. Now that the blinged version of The Castles of Burgundy is doing well on Gamefound, I may start looking for a second-hand copy of the previous edition. At least that one looks crappy.


Athena (obviously not listening): What is that?


JW: What?


Athena (pointing): That!


JW: Ah! I figured you woudn’t have time to grab a bite on your way to our office, after work. So I cooked you a simple meal. Fried rice, veggie chicken and satay sauce.


Athena: It looks like shit. (takes a small bite) It tastes like shit


JW: … Eh?


Athena (clarifying): The food sucks.


JW: Eh. Well. Yes. Anyway. It’s good to be back. I’m looking forward to discussing games again, and writing posts, and enjoying each other’s company!


Athena: You suck.





 

Postscript


Hi, it's the Real Athena™ here! Just to let you know I was not involved in the writing of this post in any way. I suck.
