My wife and I heard so much about them…and then the commercial started. You know the one…”get our work done so we can all go back to playing…Angry Birds.”
We started playing Angry Birds on our respective iPhones a month or so ago.
It started innocently enough…an hour at the end of the day or just in between tasks.
Then the time spent started to grow…playing while TV shows were on…during sporting events…things we wanted to watch instead of…playing Angry Birds.
Eventually, as we increased our levels of achievement the Angry Birds flew their way into the bedroom where we’d find ourselves firing away on our iPhones saying, “just one more game and I’ll be done…”(we’re still talking Angry Birds here)…but we were lying. We never just stopped at one more game…of Angry Birds.
Finally, the realization we both have been spending way, way too much time with Angry Birds hit us…in the unlikely form of a Staples office furniture ad.
My wife saw the ad and said, “That desk kinda looks like a design for Angry Birds with the different sections, legs and all.” I agreed…to my almost simultaneous horror. At that point, I knew we had both become full-blown Angry Birds addicts.
We have vowed to cut back on Angry Birds time…as soon as we each get to the next level…
