Playing Along Grudgingly

It seems stupid, but today I let my seven-year-old son boss me into playing Spore, when I really was not in the mood for it, and then I bailed out on him in an ill temper at the first opportunity. I have to give him credit, it did not take him long to decide I should not be playing Spore. I could not socialize or fight the right way, and those are basically the only things to do in the stage of the game I was in.

It would help sometimes if I would take guidance from someone who knows better, but I generally get too irritated by my manifest inferiority. That is why I learn on my own most of the time, painfully slow as that is. My older son is the same way. It is rough on the person who wants to help.
