Most years I then proceed to an " Advanced Robotics" class with a smaller group. We have done some fun projects in the past. But this year other duties call, so no dice. Or maybe just dice...
I did agree to reprise last year's Dungeons and Dragons group. It was an implausible success, and of the many classes I have done over the years (about 15 basic robotics, 6 advanced ones) it was by far the easiest one to do. I understand that the group I had last spring continued to meet and play on their own all summer. Heck, they may still be doing so.
I was surprised to learn that this year's D & D class filled almost instantly. They could have filled it 4 times over.
Maybe I should not be surprised after all. Call it the Big Bang Effect but it is fashionable to be a nerd these days. Nerds go on to get jobs. Nerds can troubleshoot smartphone problems for cheerleaders.
Hey, it worked out for me. I have a good job. I am married to a smart lady who claims to have been a cheerleader (I know its not true but so what). I am a grown up pretending to be a kid. They are kids who are ahead of the game of becoming grownups.
I am it seems, the King of the Nerds.
|Dogs Playing Dungeons and Dragons!|
I like any variation on Dogs playing Poker. The above is by a fellow named Jay Babcock. He ran a successful kickstarter campaign selling prints of this. You might want one. I might want one....
