Momma’s Boy (Life Achievement)
A colleague and I had previously discussed the idea of being able to integrate the XBox gaming perspective of gaming ‘Achievements’ into real-life. How you could do this… I have no idea but I’ve decided that here, on the NJLE site, that I am going to try and capture these moments when I can.
Today is Mother’s Day. For people who are of age to have moved out of their parent’s house, it’s customary to at least call your mother on the telephone.
I called my Mom this morning, shortly after waking up and getting my coffee (I mean, one must have their priorities in order!) to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day. We chatted for a bit when my Grandmother had come through the door at my parents’ house, so I chatted with her too. Before hanging up, my Mom mentioned that I was the first child to call her that morning.
Now, I’m going beyond XBox Achievements to make up a specific Modern Warfare 2 title/callsign to recognize my accomplishment of calling Mom on Mother’s Day before both of my siblings. And considering I talked to my Grandma at the same time, I think I also earned double XP for that move and get to be “Son Of The Year”.
Until next year, suckas!!
