My Husband Was Victimized

My husband was kidnapped and left in the middle of nowhere with no money or clothes. His confidence is shattered, and he can't believe someone could take so much from him; he has lost his faith in humanity.

Let me explain...

My husband has been playing World of Warcraft for over seven years. Yes, you heard me correctly. SEVEN years. What is WOW you might ask yourself? It is a role-playing computer game that makes spouses want to disconnect the internet. So in almost a decade he has built his character up with spells, gold, yada, yada (I have no clue, don't care so much). I am told people can sell their characters for cash. Perhaps, I care a little more.

Last week our PC crashed, and my husband discontinued his membership until we get the PC fixed. During this time, someone hacked into my hubby's account, stole all his gold, spells, whatever, and his clothes. Seriously people, his clothes? Couldn't he be spared the indiginity? What some people won't do.

Poor hubby, if you're reading this, I am sorry for your loss and will pay for counselling. No need to huddle in a corner and pray for an early end. Of course, I'm teasing. But, as much as I feel for him I can't help but see the humour in it. A naked WOW man.


  1. So, according to my husband it was five, not seven years. Five, seven, whatever, it's a friggin long time regardless.

  2. 4, it was 4. Good thing you want to be a writer not a journalist.
