Sitting in the Waiting Room

The Missus and I were sitting in a waiting room, she reading her Time magazine, and me reading the 3rd issue of Fight On! I only bought recently… I couldn’t stop myself from continually mentioning its awesomeness to her.

“Check this out - an undead shark - swims in a river of blood!” … “Check out this Type 5D Devil picture, it looks like something out of the Yellow Submarine” … “Listen to this! ‘This monster-god reposes in forgotten basalt deeps, and his once thronging temples have stayed abandoned since the horrific collective suicide of his faithful’!”

“Would you shut up and let me read my own magazine!?!” she says.

“But yours sucks! - Look at this, the Spawning Grounds of the Crab-Men!”

Eventually it works, and she puts down her magazine and is now laughing and smitten with mine.

“This magazine rocks, it’s just crazy stuff people put together that you can use in your own game or just get inspired by… You should try it. Just make up a monster, maybe half-man like the crab-men here. What would yours be?”

“Giraffe people,” she says. “And they attack you by hitting you with their heads that they swing on their long necks.”

The grooming of the future D&D player continues. :-)

Time to write up a giraffe people monster sheet. Give some illusionist spells. That would be cool.

And kudos to the missus on the crazy giraffe people with their cranial attack!

Anything that starts off with bass guitar is okay in my book. Is the guy behind the bass player wearing a kilt or a catholic school girl skirt?

Who knows?

That was this transvestite who used to show up to nearly every show in DC for a few years.
