Well, if you understand what this kid is going through, then, yeah, you are. You have reached a whole new level of geekdom if you react like this. I know I have a few friends that would react this way if…say, a card was obtained in a Magic: The Gathering pack…won’t mention any names, Cool Breeze, because I don’t want those reputations out in the open.
Besides, I would probably react that way, too.
The scary question is, where did he learn that behavior from? Where did he learn to react like an evil genius when he got the coveted card? Even scarier is, he learned probably from his dad…yikes.
