Weekly Photography Challenge: Twist

geek-1

My son likes to take things apart.

Occasionally, this has been a problem. But as he’s gotten older, he is more likely to ask before he dismantles.

This time, he has taken apart a remote control for a video game. The pieces lay scattered on the table when I was cleaning, and I noticed the fun twists of these wires that I simply had to photography before putting them away.

So here is my submission for this week’s challenge, “Twist”…

Not a Gamer

geek-1

Sure, I played a few video games growing up, mainly Pac-Man and Tetris. Not like my son does, though. He plays video games the way I swore I’d never let a kid play video games.

We limit his time, of course, but his obsession is beyond my comprehension.

It concerns me how much time he cares to spend playing, researching, and talking about video games. The one consolation is this: The talking he does is with us. I am incredibly grateful that, at ten, he is happy to share his interests with us.

And so, even though video games aren’t my thing, I listen.
