The joke within the above t-shirt might not be all that apparent to most of you, but if you have ever played Dungeon’s & Dragons, you won’t have to think twice.Growing up, whenever I heard D&D, my mind sort of shut down and I ignored whatever came after those letters. To me it was a “geek” or “nerd” game and I wanted nothing to do with it. Now, I’m in my mid-twenties and realize it is a lot more then I thought it was.
Last month when we went on our vacation to visit my family, that geeky guy and I started playing D&D with my brothers. Curious about what it actually was, I sat in to see what was so interesting. While sitting in, I found myself entertained and wanting to play. After expressing interest, my brothers and husband thought it would be great and integrated me into the game. Since we live so far apart, it is hard to play face-to-face, so we use the lovely technology of Skype to help us out. A couple of a times a week, we get online and play for a few hours.
What do you do when your siblings are so far away? How do you keep in touch with them? What do you do to maintain a good relationship?
