Like most boys with a love for video games, my Studly Hubby rushed immediately out to buy Grand Theft Auto (GTA) when it came out a few weeks ago and has been happily playing every chance he can get. One of the new features of the game is that your player can hang out with women, and sure enough, my Studly Hubby got a date with 'Michelle' early on in the game. They went bowling. She's from the midwest. I'm not sure if I should be jealous or not. I guess they haven't gone on a second date yet because he's been so busy roughing up bad guys and making drug deliveries, but the second date is coming and he lets me know whenever he calls her to try to set one up (and one time she flat-out rejected him and he moped around the apartment wondering why). Apparently his co-workers and carpool found out about Michelle and they frequently ask him about her so that anyone who doesn't know better thinks he is really dating someone named Michelle.
I played GTA the other night and it turns out I'm pretty bad at driving a car with a video game controller. Every time I hijacked a car the cops came after me and instead of driving away from the cops like you're supposed to do, I drove straight into a nearby building or off the side of a bridge. This usually doesn't end well, even though the Studly Hubby was shouting commands at me to help me figure it out before I got caught by the cops (which never worked out). Finally the Studly Hubby took the controller away from me and got away from the cops himself, then handed the controller back so I could take my time learning how to use it while I weaved around the city streets and ran into trash cans and light posts. It was quite an adventure.
