Okay so today was funny and kinda frustrating. I watched play Red Dead Redemption most of today when something really funny happened. It started with reminding herself how it all worked and in doing so some things that are normally easy were clumsy. Well like all who play Red Dead Redemption she had cougar trouble. Seriously these cats are nothing like their real world counterparts. They hunt humans with prejudice, often attacks in sets of three, and will ignore real prey animals to kill you. So she decides to get glue ingredients for a guy with a glider who is determined to fly like an eagle. Bare in mind the game is set in 1911. So he is on a cliff in Mexico waiting for her to come back with the ingredients. And the flowers he needs is in a cougar land. Technically called Rio Bravo in the Frontier territory of the game. But it is littered with Cougar. So she is in a bit of a mood and she gets hit by a horse rider and it throws the character like a doll. This puts an idea in my head.
Well after getting everything together for her glue you have to wait a few game days for the guy to get it together, and after getting blindsided by carnivores, including just as out of character wolves, she had decided to go out to hunt things that couldn't fight back. Rabbit, skunk, bobcats, coyote, and the like. Coyote are more manageable. Well she got out in a trail, looked both ways, and stepped out and I thought of something. "Hey what would you do if while your standing there a horse comes by and hits you like that last one did?" 3...2...1...BAM! Horse drawn carriage blind slides her like a Wile-E.-Coyote and that Truck that always hits him. She gave me the angriest look and said "YOU JINXED ME!" and I got shunned for a few seconds. I couldn't breath for five minutes, I was laughing too hard. All things like this are funny in hindsight and she thinks it humorous now too.
Then the day ended with one crazy fight. So she goes to the Northern territory and hunts boar there. She got deeper into the woods when a bear shows up. Then a second. And she gets them down when a third and then a forth show up. She manages to take them out when THREE more show up and it was just too crazy to keep up the fight with. I mean they bit and slashed at her from three different sides. But winning against 4 out of 7 bears is kinda totally epic. Even in a video game. Seriously the animals in this game are nothing like real world animal. I'm surprised the rabbits don't try to kill you. Oh well. That was my day watching her play. I hope you like the stories and got some laughs. Enjoy yourselves, Folks.
