To the last, I grapple with thee.

In a conversation this morning, Elf enquired as to how things were with me, to which I responded:

Work is slightly quieter at the moment, which is giving me one less thing to worry about as I continue to try to grapple with parenthood and fail my attack roll.

Now I’d like to blame the fact that I had been listening to the Dungeons & Dragons Podcast featuring Penny Arcade’s Mike Krahulik and Jerry Holkins, and PvP’s Scott Kurtz. However, in actual fact, I’m just one of those sad people – and I’m sure there are many others of my ilk – who can happily describe their lives in the terms of D20 combat mechanics without batting an eyelid.
