DPP2014, #4: Magic Time

Good friends, the “Wrath of God,” chocolate, and scotch. What more do you need?

Back in high school, my friends and I would play the occasional round of Dungeons & Dragons. And while it was fun adventuring with my level 5 cleric, the mighty Opus the Pious — I was a Bloom County fan back then (and still am) — I suspect the real reason we played D&D was to simply hang out and — natch — consume massive amounts of Taco Bell and Mountain Dew.

Jump ahead a couple of decades, and now I’m getting together with friends to play Magic: The Gathering. I fully admit that I’m pretty terrible — I completely botched playing that “Wrath of God” you see there in my hand — but just like in high school, the real reason I go every other week is to hang out with friends. Only now, instead of Taco Bell and Mountain Dew, we consume chocolate (pictured) and scotch (not pictured).
