Her name is Eve.
And yes, I know all about her.
I know he dreams about her during the day and steals moments with her at lunch. He spends his nights with her too. I know. And it is devastating.
His heart longs for her. She captivates him.
And after three months of marriage, I can’t compete.
So…she wins. I lose.
She wins his love, his attention, and most importantly his time.
What is a new bride supposed to do? How do I compare to this?
Ships, lights, graphics, missions, and let’s not forget the battles.
I mean really? Are you serious? You can see how she is so much more interesting.
And in reality, it’s probably not a real girl, like Weird Science type bombshell. I believe EVE is the acronym to the game (but what fun is that?). Besides, she might as well be the other woman. He loves her. Heh.
For his birthday, I even supported his affair. I bought him a state-of-the-art headset with super sound (ships firing off into space) and a microphone to talk to his shipmates. He apparently plays poker, mines the moon, and plays drinking games. At least……I think that’s what he does? Maybe a few rat barbecues. This is a man’s domain (mostly), except it’s called by a girl’s name, and they do manly space things. Mkay?
So, I don’t ask (much) and I don’t know the details (all). Only that you can get killed, but you don’t die. See, your clone takes over and you are still you, but your clone. Get it?
Yeah, me either. If all the fun is in battles and taking over moons to mine, and your best day is killing another dude that doesn’t actually die?!? Well, that’s just seems wrong. And if your worst day is you die, but you don’t? Heck. I think EVE should be a hot chick. That might be more fun.
But in all seriousness, he loves it. It’s his favorite hobby and it really does look cool. So I guess she can be a fling…..for now.

ahahahahahaha I’ve no clue who or what Eve is…but I sure loved this scandalous post!
Sherri-It’s similar to World of War Craft (role playing online game) but it’s in a virtual galaxy far, far away. Ha. 🙂
Cool! I bet the headset makes this “affair” a rendezvous one 😛 I used to craze over online games so badly that my husband had to get me a cordless phone with ear piece. Why ~ Because I got no hands to pick up calls! hahaha my bad…
Momma-HA! Too funny! At least he was helping you out. I think it looks fun, but complicated. I think I’ll stick with blogging. 🙂

You know I’m right there with you. I even tried to join in and play too but I gave up. There is no winning but at least now Lonnie plays on his laptop so we can watch our shows together.
Rachael-Yep, you do know!! Well, I use the laptop and he gets to use his new headset thingy, so it all works out. 🙂
Sorry, but I have to take his side on this one too ;o) I want one of those babies too!
This seriously looks like a fun game to play, but dang it, I have enough online addictions…one more and you might as well beam me off planet to live in the ether…
This is just a guy’s way of making social connections…LOL…next time Eve encroaches on your time, just sit in Jason’s lap and remove the headphones…sure, someone might kill him, but he doesn’t really die now does he? 😉
You are such an understanding wife to tolerate another woman!! 🙂
oh that’s funny!! my hubby calls my laptop the “other man” ….hahaha….
Haha! Oh goodness, this is funny!
Yes, I know your pain. I have lived with an Eve for years now. There is always an Eve. Call of Duty, Star Trek, I can’t even think of all the names. I just don’t like ’em when I can’t TALK to him for fear I will get him virtually shot/killed. But it is still better that he is home. One game he played was a bunch of shooting so even though he had a head set on he would SHOUT so loud I couldn’t be in the room and I had to shut the door to the room he was in. But it is still better to have him home. Now it is games on his iPad. But at least they are quiet games. 🙂
Thank you for your comments on my blog. I’d like a floor that massages my feet too.
My hubby has two other women the I guess. He is married to his job, which I actually like and his gaming.
It gives me time to be with my love, writing. XD
My husband had thought about playing that game once. He was lost to WoW (World of Warcraft) though for years and got me hooked on it too. If you can’t beat them, join them! 😉
GOOD NIGHT, HAL.
