There Will Be Some Fallout From This

| Romantic | February 1, 2016

(Warning, the following story contains plot spoilers for the video game Fallout 4.)

(I have just bought ‘Fallout 4’ and have warned my girlfriend I will be playing it for most of the weekend. The game starts with a character creation screen, allowing you to define nearly every aspect of not only your character’s face, but also your character’s wife.)

Me: “I’m going to make my character look just like me, and the wife to look just like you.”

Girlfriend: “Aww, so romantic!”

Me: “That way, I can say I’m spending time with you when I play.”

Girlfriend: “…Not what I had in mind, but I’ll take it.”

(I then spend almost three hours fine-tuning both faces so that they look as close as possible to our actual faces.)

Girlfriend: “That took you three hours!?”

Me: “I know but it was worth it!”

(I then start playing the actual game, but just over an hour in…)

Me: “Ugh… babe…”

Girlfriend: “What is it?”

Me: “…you died.”
