I was in my office today, and I suddenly had the strange and random thought….what if my life was like a video game? (Office simulator 2000? They probably already have that.)
Here are some things that would probably happen (and be okay) If my life ran with video game rules.
Granted, I am mixing together a whole bunch of video game mechanics, and physics from different engines. But, here’s what I came up with.
-Drive to work. Crash into everything, miraculously, car is okay. Also hit 5 people. Short police chase, but they soon forget about me after I hide under a bridge for 10 minutes.
-Get in random fight with coworker. Because why not? They will forget and be my friend again as soon as it is over.
-Why is person blocking the doorway??? I CANNOT GET OUT.
-Running everywhere. Must kick open all the doors.
-I can somehow carry 20 items, even though I am just wearing a blouse and skirt. Where am I carrying these?
-Every time I see something interesting in someone’s bag or on their desk I will steal it.
-If I don’t want something anymore, I’ll just throw it on the floor.
-Okay to walk into any room at any time.
-Jump and squat and jump and squat. Now, emote.
-Break open anything that looks fragile. It may have loot.
-And of course, leave in the middle of any conversation or any job.
-Also totally ok to steal peoples cars to get out of there.
Did I miss any? What other things happen in a video game that would be uncomfortable in real life?
