Now that's my idea of a fun weekend
Yes, I'm off to play Dungeons & Dragons :-)
We've been playing this particular campaign for ... oh, years. Years and years. Several of us have moved house in that time and one of us has got married. Yet Dragonlance goes on, a constant in our lives.
I suppose one day it will have to end - and then we'll start a new game. After all, we've known each other since 1987. We bicker about rules. We share jokes that mean nothing to anyone outside our group. We reminisce about travels together both in the real world and imaginary ones. We argue about movies, as we span the range from trash action thrillers to arthouse. We try to avoid getting into stand-up rows about politics (well, usually). We cook experimental and amazing meals for each other and whine at (1) the vegetarians, and (2) the guy who will only eat meat. We occasionally get drunk and a bit maudlin.
We may be growing old together, but we will never really grow up.
