Virtual Reality

“I’m really excited about getting my new virtual reality Dream World game for my VR headset,” Danny said.

“I heard that game is disappointing,” Eric said.

“Your ignorance about virtual reality games is remarkable,” Danny said. “This is version 2.0 and a lot of the petty annoyances in the previous version have been fixed.”

“So you think this so-called revised version will be significantly better?”

“Yes, I really do.” Danny said.

“Then, my friend, you should definitely enjoy the game,” Eric said, “because I think you actually do live in a VR dream world.”

SoCS — Bored Games

“I’m bored, Daddy,” Erica said.

“I am too,” her younger brother Tommy said.

“But you kids love to play Clue,” Ben said. “It’s your favorite board game.”

“I’m bored with board games, Daddy,” Erica said. “I want to play virtual reality video games like they have for Oculus Quest.”

“I do too, Daddy,” Tommy said.

“Well,” Ben said, “Maybe we’ll see if Santa will bring you something like that for Christmas. In the meantime, let’s finish our game of Clue.”

“Mommy, I’m bored with board games,” Erica called out to her mother who was fixing dinner in the kitchen.

“I am too, Mommy,” Tommy said.

“Deal with it, Ben,” Mona shouted. “I’m busy.”
