Me: "Sure, but I'm in the middle of a game, and would like to get to a save point first. It may be a half hour".
Her: "Ok, no problem."
I love that "I need to play my video game for a while" counts as a valid excuse.. The sad thing is that it is a real excuse for me. I know I could leave the game on and not save, but then I'm paranoid about accidentally shutting it off, and also, most games have a "this is how many hours you've played" counter, and I feel guilty watching it tick upwards without me doing anything about it.
Yeah, I'm crazy.. now let me go find a save point.
