Sucking air

You may think I'm about to talk about how out of shape I am. No... I'm not in great shape, but I'm getting better.

I'm talking about Halo.

Halo 3 comes out this month....and so my sweet man is back to playing Halo - the original. He's going through it much faster than when it first came out. But now we have less time to play as it is not a game that is appropriate for kiddos. So, he has to use headphones and play late at night. What I never heard when he played before is now very clear with no sound to cover it. When he is surprised, he sucks air. When a Hunter jumps out behind him, I hear it. When an Elite with a sword comes out of nowhere, I hear it.

So, why is this significant? Well, my husband doesn't suck air in real life very much. We hit a snag in a plan, and he rolls with it. He isn't a complainer...even when he is sick. Occasionally our kids will fall or something that will bring a suck of air from him....but generally he is just not surprised by life. He is logical, even-keeled, and he handles things. He may not like it, but he just doesn't suck air over everything that comes our way.

I like that about him. And I don't mind hearing him suck a little air as he defends the Earth from the Covenant.

BTW I have read the first three books in the Halo series....Yes, I admit it....and I liked 1 and 3. If you like sci-fi or someone you love is a Halo addict, it might be worth a read of at least the first one to connect with the story.
