You know you're married to an AVG (avid video gamer) when he reads to you from Game Informer as you drift off to sleep. You know you're a VGV (video game voyeur) when you grab the mag away from him to see for yourself.
This was the case the other night when my husband revealed "Michael Phelps: Push the Limit" was coming out for the 360 in the fall. My response: Do you swim in first person or Speedo view?
You yell "boost" to get an edge. You hype the crowd by moving wildly. You actually bend over to dive in. You flail your arms to finish first. Clearly, you need to be Richard Simmons to play this game.
Would you rather watch your husband ride in Richard Simmons's sidecar or watch him play Michael Phelps?
Would you rather watch your husband give Richard Simmons a piggy back or watch him play Michael Phelps?
Would you rather watch your husband hold hands and skip with Richard Simmons or watch him play Michael Phelps?
These are tough choices. I would love to watch them all. But I choose Michael Phelps. Start shaving, honey...
