With an undergraduate degree in history, I tend to watch documentaries, and yesterday, on the 4th of July, I tuned into one on — naturally — the American Revolution.
And, of course, I encouraged the boys to watch with me.
“Sorry, Mom,” Elder said, offering me a hug in consolation. “But I feel that I’m already an expert on the Revolutionary War.” When I looked at him with furrowed brow, he added, “From Assassin’s Creed.”
A video game.
He’s an expert on the Revolutionary War because of a video game.
Think of the years others waste reading and researching.
If they only knew that all they really need is an X-Box.
