My Husband's Having an Affair with Zelda

Zelda is not a woman ... it's a video game, and though it may seem silly, I swear this affair is for real.

Husband plays video game while annoyed wife watches behind

It's a fantasy, a de-stresser, it's his favorite thing to do on a Friday night (and every other night, too)! No, it's not sex, it's Zelda, the video game, and like a real affair, it's highly addictive. He figures out ways to manipulate "her," he spends hours dissecting what strategy he should apply next to get to know her better and when she's there, he barely pays attention to me. We used to go out and grab dinner on a Friday or Saturday night. Now? He's got a date ... with Zelda.

It gets worse: While in the hospital for a minor procedure, my husband drove me home and reminded me I had to be on "bed rest", meaning in the bedroom, not on the couch: "The doctor said bed rest, honey," he said earnestly. "Oh okay, if I lay on the couch for two days, it's really the same as being in the bed." "No," he said, "you have to be in bed." Then I figured it out ... he wanted the living room so he could sneak in a little video game time.

The other day, I reached the end of my rope. I came home from work, he was in deep concentration mode -- I mean, you would have thought he was playing in the US Open Zelda championship or something. "Hi, honey!" I said, and walked over to give him a kiss. "Ugh. I've been stuck on the bridge for hours, babe, not now." That was it. I thought of some things I could do, like hide the game, put a dent in it, scratch it or just throw it away, but then he would just run to the store and buy another one. I'm hoping, like most affairs, this one will eventually fizzle. But that better hurry, because I'm starting to find some hobbies of my own. While they'll never replace him, I might just give him a taste of his own medicine and be gone playing with my new hobby ... my tennis instructor!

Hello everybody, This web page is excellent as well exactly how the subject had been expanded. I like some of the comments too even though I would choose we all keep it on topic to be able to add significance to the subject.

If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you’re kind, amazing things will happen.

Most people, when they criticize, whether they like it or hate it, they’re talking about product. That’s not art, that’s the result of art. Art, to whatever degree we can get a handle on (I’m not sure that we really can) is a process. It begins in the heart and the mind with the eyes and hands.

Thanks for posting this, it made interesting reading.

I guess what I’m trying to say is, I don’t think you can measure life in terms of years. I think longevity doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with happiness. I mean happiness comes from facing challenges and going out on a limb and taking risks. If you’re not willing to take a risk for something you really care about, you might as well be dead.

to destory an xbox360 and make it look like a mistake:
tip it over while it’s playing and wacth the hated RID RING

to stop a PC gamer:
give him the blue screen of death

to stop a playstation gamer:
while he’s not looking take the memory card out go to wallmart and buy a new memory card that look’s like it….
then enjoy his utter confusion and him screaming “WHAT THE THE GAME RESTARTED”

…. dont take this seriously

This page seems to get a great deal of visitors. How do you get traffic to it? It offers a nice unique spin on things. I guess having something real or substantial to post about is the most important factor.

I’m astounded by people who want to ‘know’ the universe when it’s hard enough to find your way around Chinatown.
