So it's 9:30. I've gotten home at 9:00. I'm trying to unwind with some quality Mount & Blade time. Katrina is sitting at her adjacent computer. But she's talking. She's talking about what to get a friend's kid for a kiddie party, and what to get Evan for his birthday, and the relative merits of various sizes of Lego tables for Evan, and Legos in general, and things that people have recently said to her about Legos, and the feelings of her various friends regarding Legos collected during conversations in which they exchanged ideas and grew closer in sisterhood.
I'm just trying to shoot river pirates in the head.
This causes problems.
Katrina: So I looked at this table, and then this table. This one is nicer but it's much more expensive, even on Ebay.
Katrina: Are you paying attention to me?
Ken: Yes. Tables. Ebay. Expensive.
Katrina: No you aren't. You are playing the game.
Ken: I'm ….uh…I'm listening to you as well.
Katrina: You just shot that guy in the head. While you were talking to me about paying attention.
Ken: Uh .. no I didn't. Not really.
Katrina: Yes you did.
Katrina: There's an arrow sticking out of his head. That's gross.
Ken: It's a battlefield. It's dangerous.
Katrina: Well my point is that you're shooting at them instead of listening to me.
Ken: I AM listening to you. I can do both at once.
Katrina: You can ride around on that horse and shoot people from horseback and pay attention to me?
Ken: They're only river pirates.
Katrina: What did I say about Ebay?
Ken: Well, it was a very interesting bit about the relative merits of products available thereon and the your feelings about the lego table and legos in general, and table dimensions were in the whole mis en scene.
Katrina: Can't you stop your horse and listen to me?
Ken: They'll catch up and get me.
Katrina: I thought they were only river pirates.
Ken: But they'll kill the horse. They kill the horse first. Do you want that on your conscience?
Katrina: It's not a real horse. It's not important.
Ken: Compared to lego table dimensions?
Ken: OK, that was just a joke.
Katrina: Enjoy your time with the horse.
