‘Angry Birds’ Take Over My Life

If you have an Ipod Touch and still want to maintain a social life- DO NOT READ THIS.

It has been over three months now, and I have yet to grow tired of  flinging birds into wood planks and TNT.

As many of you know, there are tons of games that can be downloaded onto your Ipod. I am not a huge “gamer,” but my boyfriend insisted I start playing this fruit cutting ninja game. I was intrigued for a day or two, but it grew old and I soon wanted something different. After going through a list of the top rated Ipod Touch games, we stumbled across Angry Birds.

I remember the first moments when the game began. I slowly cocked my finger back and released a small red bird into a field of pigs. I didn’t understand it at first- why are we killing these innocent green piggies? So what, they stole the bird’s eggs? Big deal.

I would hit them with a bird and they appeared to be bruised up. I would hit them with another bird and then they poofed away leaving numbers to higher my score. ¬†When I would run out of birds and pigs were still remaining- even if bruised and broken- they would turn their frown into a smile and make oinking noises. That was when the “Level Failed” icon would appear. That is also when the addiction grew strong, and the hatred toward these green oinking bastards overtook me.
