I would seriously love to ban Guitar Hero from the household. Kirk and Reed love it, but it sets me on edge. I can rarely even sit in the room while it's being played! Like right now, Kirk is playing a "gig"and all I wanted to do was curl up in a chair, in my warm family room (while sipping a little cocktail) and finish reading the paper. But no sooner did I sit down than the screeching, frenetic guitar/drum craziness erupted! I asked, nicely, to please finish soon. But then I'm told "I'm only two songs away from finishing. I can't stop now." So, I removed myself upstairs while my nerves settle a little. I mean, I'm not asking for Brahms instead - just a chance to sit where I want without risk of a nervous breakdown!
Someday, in the next house, there will be a room for all such "toys." To be kept contained, and away from me!
