June 20th 2019
Today I’ve got square eyes from staring at screens all day. After a full day at work in front of screens, I spent my evening playing a marathon FIFA session with my sister’s boyfriend. We played until our eyes hurt — and, conveniently, until Steve won. After going 2-0 down (by losing two, two-legged fixtures) I clawed it back to 2-2 (by winning two, two-legged fixtures).
At 2-2, Steve declared a decider, even though it was getting pretty late. The first leg ended at a coincidental and conveniently poised 2-2, and I was 1-0 up in the 80th minute of the second leg when he slotted home from a scramble at a corner to win the tie on away goals. I was fuming.
After a solid 4 hour FIFA sesh my eyes hurt and my neck ached and my hands were sweaty knees weak arms were heavy — did I make that joke last week? I forget.
And now, if you don’t mind, I’m done looking at screens for the day.
Until tomorrow, turn off the light.
