Hello, My name is Mrs. Schmitty...

....and I am an addict.

This is my first time saying that out loud for all to hear. I.AM.AN.ADDICT.

Wow. Powerful words.

I never thought I had an addictive personality. But then again, I guess if I thought I did, I wouldn't have been in denial for so long, huh?

It all started innocently enough. It was fun, you know? But slowly, I began to get hooked. There were stages involved. Good. Excellent. Amazing. I was under it's mesmerizing spell. And the higher I got, the more I wanted. Again and again.

It began keeping me from my work. I didn't shower or get dressed. It kept me from doing the other things, I so much loved to do. It sparkled like a diamond that was just out of reach. It was always taunting me, always daring me to fail.

Suddenly, I no longer lived in the moment, I was always looking for the next thrill. And there were others there. Watching. Waiting to see what I would do.

I can't let them tear me down. I won't.

Aw, shit, never mind. I'm going back on Facebook to play Bejeweled Blitz again.

Just wrote about the same damn thing last night.

You're a better person though and took ownership. I just accused FB of knowingly sprinkling crack on its site.

I have never done any of those extra stuff because I heard that's how you can get a virus. I know that probably is not true but I keep telling myself this so I don't start it, lol. I have heard a lot about some farm thing too.

It is like crack I tell you! There is another one that I can't get enough of...totally going to send it to you too.

I try to stay away from the games for that reason.

I'm with you on this one.

Mr Yammering would agree with me a hundred percent!

Hee hee hee haw haw haw...
I have no idea what you are talking about.
I have never stayed up until 2 a.m. playing that stupid game.
I have never had to put drops in my eyes from staring at the screen too long.
I'm beating you, by the way.

I thought you were going to say Mafia Wars. Oh yeah, I'm the one that's addicted to that.

I love that game. I haven't played in awhile. I'm feel shaky now.

Darn you, Mrs. Schmitty! You are soooo Schmitty. :-)
