• your hygiene
  • you’re a gross eater
  • you call women’s underwear “panties”
  • you’re too drunk
  • your morning breath
  • your unsolicited advice
  • you flirt with other people
  • you’re always picking fights
  • your delusions of grandeur
  • your grammar
  • you dumped me
  • you’re a bad breaker-upper

Sometimes it takes the courage to count your losses and hit reset and try again.  And again and again. Until these moves and codes have become such second nature that, almost effortlessly, Bowser goes down without a fight. And then eventually, in a perfect world, you’ll beat the game.  Mario gets Peach, Link gets Zelda and that Tetris piece in the shape of an L gets the perfect square.  Everyone wins. But you’ll never get there if you don’t keep playing.
