This is a confession of a person I know. She loves to play games on her iPad. Blitz seems to be her favorite nowadays. The other ones she likes, beside Blitz are, Angry Birds, Temple Run and Snoopy Coaster. She loves to do Jigsaw Puzzles. She has downloaded so many of them.
In the days gone by, she loved Nintendo. Her daughter brought it as a gift for her elder brother. The brother was incensed at her. At that time he was doing his job as an Electrical Engineer. “Are you out of your mind?” He asked Nola (his sister) sarcastically. Poor Nola was embarrassed, and thats’ when the person I know said she will try it. At the beginning, she was afraid of falling off in the virtual world and combatting dragons. Gradually she became a pro at it, when she did find time to play.
Eventually, she got all the games for her Nintendo. She loved being Mario, Jungle Boy, Aladdin, Batman and The Lion King. She dodged Zombies heroically, literally having her heart in her mouth, when she was playing it. DonkeyKong was one of her favorites too.
Her son bought for her a DSI. Now she could carry her games. She loved getting Wii as a present. It added a new dimension to her world. Her grand kids thought of her as a ‘cool’ grandma. They were delighted that she could play with them.
I am feeling terribly embarrassed, but the person I talked about, is Me.
