The Things We Do For Our Friends

So what did I do last night?  I honored a bet that I lost a while ago.

Longtime gamers remember there was a game called Star Trek -- Starfleet Academy Starship Bridge Simulator for the Sega Genesis, SNES, and 32X.  It is a game that puts you on the bridge of a Starfleet ship, literally giving orders to the various stations such as navigation, engineering, and so on.

So picture this:  TV set against the wall.  SNES with the game inserted in front of that.  In front of that is me sitting in a rocker-style close to the floor video game chair with the controller.  And behind me, in a Barcolounger sitting higher so he can see over me, is the guy I lost the bet to.  He is wearing a Next-Gen Starfleet uniform and issuing orders from "the captain's chair" to guide me through the game.

Yeah.  He got to live his fantasy.  At least it was one I could deal with.
