Wow! I finally discovered that I am getting RDR2! Wink wink!

Since about Father's Day, my wife and son pre-ordered RDR2 for me.  Since, my son who is terrible at keeping secrets has been trying to find ways to let me know.  As a good father I keep pretending to be blind to the evidence or hints he keeps dropping. 

Well, this weekend end he got me.  While the pre-order was downloading, he had opened up the que on his xbox.    Minutes later he comes in and tells me his xbox was working, said he put a game in and there was some smoke and everything died.  Now being a guy who has worked in electronics all my life, this isn't totally unheard of, so I run in to handle the situation, totally bull in a china shop.  Get in there and sure enough RDR2 plastered across his TV screen.  He then politely ask me if I see what is loading on the screen.  I turn pretending to be angry, asking him why he's getting RDR2 and I didn't.  Seeing him grinning from ear to ear.  I couldn't hold it and started smiling myself.   He then told me "Happy Father's Day and explained that I would have gotten it sooner, but Rockstar messed up big time and didn't deliver in time. " 

For a kid who has been trying for months to clue me in to the surprise, he finally got me.

You are indeed a very fortunate Dad, seems a perfect Fathers day gift, clearly well deserved, and from a loving family ...awesome

Let's not get ahead of ourselves.  I am sure about the time the title screen goes up, my wife will breakout the old Honey Do-List.  hehehehe

I'm pretty sure that's inevitable...

You need Bropollo's Spousal Roofie Special:  basically give (in my case) Mrs. Creed an Irish Mule with double the Jameson Caskmates (Stout variety) and put on Grey's Anatomy on Hulu.  Wait fifteen minutes, and once she's asleep, head to the media room and fire up the DLP projector with my headphones on.

50% of the time, it works every time.

You're lucky. I have a wife that, 99% of the time, won't drink. She drinks MAYBE one day a year. 😒

Are you kidding, I used to be a tee-totaler before I dated Mrs. Creed.  Her whole family are liberal with their alcohol consumption (albeit different mediums)--true story, her dad was okay with us dating because I only drank good scotch, neat (his other son in law would put Crown Royal in Coke--the heathen!).

My mother-in-law likes when I come up with fun little cocktails for her, like the Simple Jack (muddled blackberries, ice, 2 (but really 4)oz of salted carmel vodka and 4oz apple cider in a double old fashioned glass), so as long as I make decent little drinks, I'm the #1 son in law.

Mrs. Creed was slowing down until Whiteclaw came out, now she's in DGAF mode (which is why I love her)
