Gamer girls are sometimes misunderstood. But really, I think people are just jealous of their superhuman strong thumbs and keen hand-eye coordination. So when someone starts popping off about your love of all things Xbox, here’s a handy translation guide so they can figure out what you’re really trying to say…
When Your Guy Gets the new HALO and Won’t Let You Play
She said: No it’s cool. I said I’m fine. Cheering for you is way more fun…
She meant: G’head and keep your damn HALO. I hope it’s better than hooking up because I’m not putting out until you let me play.
Thinking Up a Player Name
She said: Hmmm…what should I do for mine? Plain old “Shallon” seems too boring—if only I had a nickname…
She meant: Um hello now is the perfect time for everyone to start calling me Fancykid! And yeah so what if I thought it up myself—it’s still cool, dammit!
Why You Have the Door Closed
She said: Mom, I need peace and quiet to work on this science project, OK? Jeez.
She meant: Yeah, the project called “If I don’t beat this level of Splinter Cell I’ll go crazy.”
When a Cute Guy Asks You to Come Over and Play Warcraft
She said: Oh gosh, I’ve only played once or twice…don’t judge me if I’m bad LOL!
She meant: Yeah, once or twice this morning. My middle name is Azeroth, bitch.
When Your Dad Tells You to Go Outside and Get Some Fresh Air
She said: Yup sure. Coming outside innaminute Daddy…
She meant: Pfft, the outdoors is filled with bees and UV rays and sweatiness. But my Xbox is only filled with WIN!
