It used to be that I’d come home, put my stuff away and wander into my mom’s office. I’d lean on the back of her chair, look over her shoulder and ask, “How are your fake customers?” or “How’s fake business these days?” For a while now, her and my sister have been positively hooked on these Facebook games like Cafe World and FarmVille. She’d laugh and say, “You should play! It’s fun!” To which I’d respond with a vehement no because a, Facebook is the devil and b, the last thing I wanted was a mindless game sucking up all my time. I mean, I have books to read and, well, that’s all. Which is probably why I eventually caved. And it didn’t take much. Back in December, while visiting my sister (who, by the way, checks on her cafe at least eighteen times a day) I said, “Okay, fine. How do I play?” And it’s been a problem ever since.
But a really fun problem.
