Thanks, Joe. The funny thing is that I've done ALL of those things in "real life"
Yup. Done nearly all those things in real life.
Hoarding items and never using them
Ever touching an ocarina
Everything except the ocarina.
I'm not sure what "Ever touching" an ocarina would be (maybe a typo?) but I'm pretty sure I've never touched one. However I did have to play with a tonette and a recorder in elementary school which seem to be much the same thing.
Hoarding items and never using them -- check your cabinets and closets and you'll find the evidence
Skipping dialogue -- ever get cornered by anyone who tries to force a one-sided conversation on you and you just want to get away?
Restoring energy -- breakfast, lunch, dinner, tea, coffee, snacks
Escort missions -- anyone who has had to take care of young kids (or walk a dog)
Solving puzzles -- figuring out the controls on your new toaster
Walkthroughs -- manuals for any type of equipment
Ever touching an ocarina -- see above
Gathering resources -- grocery or hardware store shopping
Stealth -- sneaking past your parents at night to get to the refrigerator. Or for parents, sneaking presents under the Christmas tree.
