Pokemon Go: "Sorry Mom"
Posted: Saturday August 20th, 2016 by

Again, as before, I don't really have an issue with Team Dumb Mystic or Team Useless Instinct. If I did, virtually none of my "friends" would be allowed in my home. They'd be fine with this though because pokemon don't spawn in our immediate vicinity. And, spawn rarely within our neighborhood. This is odd and more than a little bit frustrating as I have been out in the middle of nowhere, on a farm, where the nearest neighbor is a mile away, the nearest store is even farther, and they had six pokemon within 50 feet of their front door.

I have found that, though I still play the game daily, I just don't really enjoy talking about it. I don't know if I tripped my own nerd alarm or what. But talking about evolves, transfers, candies, and pokestops now register in my brain the same way rattling on about a fantasy football team does. That doesn't mean I don't harass Taks with both. It just means I cringe when I catch myself rambling on an on about how many pidgeys I have stacked for evolving before popping a lucky egg, or whether or not I feel Mark Sanchez should even be on the Denver Broncos roster. (He shouldn't.)

At any rate, Pokemon Go is still a welcome distraction on breaks from work. I just hope Niantic slows the rate at which they're ruining the game soon.
