Dave and I and some of our pals used to have game night every other week. We’d pull some obscure board game from the closet, munch on pretzels, and geek out for a few hours. “Roll to see if I’m drunk” was a favorite (only partially ironic) joke. (For non-geeks out there, in role playing games, a roll of the dice determines a character’s behavior, actions, and their consequences.)
Maybe we should say, “Roll to see if I’m HOT!”
“As with an RPG, you roll a virtual character, manage your inventory and resources, and try to achieve a goal. Weight Watchers’ points function precisely like hit points; each bite of food does damage until you’ve used up your daily amount, so you sleep and start all over again. Play well and you level up — by losing weight!”
