Nothing in my life recently has felt more “mid-30s” than scheduling an evening to play Smash Bros approximately 4 weeks in advance.

This is inclusive of all the rigamarole around being 8 months pregnant.

(To be clear, I'm not the pregnant one. I have the easy job.)

@supercres Congrats on your pregnancy Patrick.

play the super smash bros now because life is a lot different after the baby comes. you know this already if this is not your first.

@PurpleCar If it weren't the first I'm not sure I'd even be able to do this ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@supercres I'm not sure how you can be pregnant but I don't assume gender these days anymore.

@supercres and I have to add, it isn't that you can't organize adult playdates like that, it just turns out that you don't really want to. You'd rather sleep or turn on Netflix and fall asleep on the couch.

A Millennial should write a book on "how to stay cool and maintain ties with childless friends throughout raising children of your own." We Xers sure as hell didn't do it well and the Boomers just did it anyway at the expense of good sense & decent parenting.

@PurpleCar @supercres When the baby came, I watched movies in two or three parts, because that's all the "me" time I could find for awhile.
