A couple of days after my last post, On the subject of video games and prison lingo, this conversation took place with Bryce about another video game.
Bryce: Mommy, will you watch me play this game? It’s pretty cool.
Me: Sure, I can watch for a few minutes.
Bryce: Let me show you the characters first.
He starts flipping through these pages of characters on the game. The graphics of this game are also cartoons, but I realized right away that it’s more of an adult cartoon style. At least the detailed pictures were. When the game is in play the characters all compress down into innocuous looking little people and they appear child-like. But when you peruse the actual game roster the characters are all sexy fantasy creatures…who are well endowed and wearing very little clothing. I saw picture after picture of female characters with their breasts hanging out and wearing small bikini style costumes to match their persona. I was shocked, but Bryce didn’t seem to notice how exposed these characters were and the conversation continued…
Me: I’m surprised daddy let you pick this game.
Bryce: Why? It’s fun.
He then shows me a picture of an exceptionally racy looking character and I almost choked on my tongue.
Me: Who is that character?
Bryce: She’s a Succubus.
Me: For fuck’s sake! (said quietly to myself so Bryce wouldn’t hear)
When I mentioned this little conversation to my husband, he had the decency to look embarrassed before he started laughing his ass off. And when I mentioned writing this post to him he said, “What’s the big deal? It’s a mythological creature……that could be painted on the hood of a Camaro.”
I rest my case.
