The force is weak with this one, pt. 5

Rob: Parenthood is kind of like devoting your life to World of Warcraft.
Tim: Your child is like your avatar?
Rob: Precisely. At the start, hopes are high.
Rob: You envision an idealized version of yourself, free of your inborn flaws. Capable of doing what you always wished you could.

Rob: You decide what strengths are most important, and build them up accordingly.
Tim: Raise either a sword-swinging jock or a spell-casting nerd.
Rob: You watch with pride as your creation grows stronger.

Rob: You constantly compare others' characters with your own. Most of the time, its status and activity are all you have to think or talk about.
Tim: Your kid's skipping a grade? That's because you have no life!
Rob: Then the challenges become more complex and difficult.
Tim: Your avatar starts giving you sass.

Rob: Eventually, you find the effort unsustainable or simply lose interest. In the end, you look back to realize you've spent all this time and money with nothing to show for it.
Tim: You question your life choices.
Rob: Your real-life friends have long since abandoned you.
Tim: And you masturbate a lot.

Some parents might resort to strategy guides (parenting books, etc.). Which is fine, if you want to be a cheater.

If brevity is the soul of wit... oooops.
