"Yeah, he misses family functions, like Thanksgiving, because he has to play Dungeons and Dragons. And he paints these little pewter figurines. He's so weird."Unbelieving head-shaking follows by all folks conversing.
Granted, I would never miss Thanksgiving for a game session, and I think I overheard later that homeboy may have dressed up as a vampire for some of these sessions (if you do, that's fine, but I can see folks considering that beyond the pale), but it was sad because any thought of D&D being hip again because of the OSR resurgence took a wet blanket right then.
