the game of life

i felt compelled to share this little vignette from my home life... being neither well-coordinated nor generally calm, i have never been much into video games. i do, however, get quite fascinated watching other people play video games (there's probably some weird voyeur complex at work there, but i'd really prefer not to go there). so i was watching dom playing tetris earlier and it occurred to me: what's the end game here? what are you ultimately pursuing? so i decided to ask the resident expert, meaning the person in the room who knows more about tetris than i do. here's how it went:

kate : so how do you win at this, anyway?

dom : you can't.

kate : so what's the point of it?

dom : you just keep going for as long as you can.

And the sad truth is that that's life in a single statement.
