What’s up Addicts? What’s the haps on the craps?
Is that saying even cool any more? Where are all my old school rap fans at? West coast is the best coast, right? Somehow I think I dated myself just now but it’s ok. I’ve never been the guy who was cool/hip/fly/dope/etc. I’ve always been more of a Lewis Skolnick than a Zack Morris. Before you start the Screech jokes, know I did identify with that character but as I’ve met him in real life and wish I hadn’t, I would never compare myself to him plus I’m much more street smart. If you gotta pick a nerd, pick a good one and Lewis is that.
Anywho… this post isn’t about the eighties or nineties or nerds. It’s actually just a question I was wondering about. So here’s what’s been floating in me noggin. Last week while tapa tapa tapping in Wookieetown, I realized that it brings me joy when I see that a particular neighbor has tapped certain buildings. For example, I have a buddy who really likes Professor Frink. When I see his name attached to a tap on Frink’s lab or other “smart” buildings, I smile. It’s also sweet that his lady makes sure to tap the lab when it’s available. Admittedly, I made sure my lab was neat-o just for him.
Another neighbor whose favorite is Otto taps the school bus in Wookieetown consistently. It’s so funny to me and dare I admit I prefer not to see other names attached to the bus. Weird to think it as purely that neighbors tapping space. I have a frienderino with a horror-themed moniker who naturally taps on my grave yard. Because I know she loves baseball, it makes sense that Alissa would tap on Duff Stadium. Just another one of those little things about TSTO which adds to my experience.
Another strange thing to admit is when I see certain friends tap on their buildings, I’ve been known to verbalize a hello and have my family look at me like I farted. I like seeing people on my friends list having “regular haunts”. This got me wondering if I was a creature of habit with what I tap. I paid attention over a week and other than really liking to vandalize buildings regardless of friend points (I blame egging and TPing during Halloween 2012), I found myself tapping the Android’s Dungeon when it was available. Makes sense since CBG is my favorite character and I love comic books as well as Nerdicana in general.
So, I’m curious. Do you find yourself consistent in what you tap? What’s your favorite tapping spot? Do you not care and just randomly hit things? Do you hit it and quit it or do you take your time to find the right thing to tap? Do your neighbors consistently pick certain areas to place their marks? Did all those questions sound dirty? Sound off in the comments below with any thoughts or experiences.
Until next time keep on tapping in the free world. TTFN… Wookiee out!
