22. More Like ‘Ego Attacks’
“So there is this old SNES game called ‘Tetris Attack’ that’s a ‘Panel del Pon’ port with a ‘Super Mario World 2’ theme. I played the heck out of that game when I was growing up and I was pretty good at it. I’m actually still half-decent and I only play every few months when I visit my family.
Anyhow, I was kinda-sorta seeing this guy and I have NO idea how the topic came up, but he challenged me to beat him at ‘Tetris Attack.’ I had sincere doubts that he had ever played before despite his posturing, and…it turned out I was right.
I trounced him and he actually said, ‘How are you so good at this stupid game?’ Practice, my dude. Years of practice.”
