I have officially passed the torch.

An actual phone conversation between myself and my dear friend Barbara's 14 year-old son Orion this evening:
*ring*
Me: Hello?
Orion: Hey Kennon, this is Orion.
Me: Hey buddy! What's up?
Orion: Not much, I was just wondering what kind of dice I need to buy to play Dungeons & Dragons?
Me: Well you'll need six different kinds; one four-sided die, one six-sider, one eight-sider, two ten-siders, one twelve, and a twenty. Get that?
Orion: Yeah thanks. See ya.

It's great to hear that kids are still playing with games with dice. There's some hope left in this electronic age.

And you don't officially pass the torch unless you give him your original set of polyhedrons...

i am going to break ranks here and say what a giant nerd you are... though i do have respect for the rolling of the dice versus the rolling of the mouse.

be sure you pass on your kick-assery to the boy as well.

Yes, I am a huge nerd.

Why am I just now seeing this? My boy has converted many "normal" boys into nerds since that fateful conversation.
