You know you've been playing adventure games too long when:
--you eat soup from the microwave for every meal for a week, because going to the grocery store would interfere with your in-game flow....you're on a roll and can't be distracted
--your cat is mad because you're always on the computer and she begins to unwind all the toilet paper.....only to be confronted by your puzzled face wondering if you could piece it back together like you did the torn paper puzzle in the game you're playing
--the only thing you take time to make is coffee
--you find yourself doing your homework in the wee hours of the morning because, "Dammit, Larry Laffer needs me!"
--you dream of being sent to Syberia and it's a GOOD thing
--you know that if your friends DO give up on you and send you to the Sanitarium, you'll be able to survive, because you did, afterall, help Max to survive
--you start telling your friends and family when to eat, sleep, pee and get in the hot tub, and you start spouting at the dinner table, "This graw is fredishay."
--no one will talk to you anymore because they can't understand why your right forefinger keeps twitching each time you ask them a question
By the way....I love this thread too! It makes me feel sort of "normal."
