I Have Another Obsession: 2048

I do.


I mean… it’s not REALLY an obsession.

It’s more of something that distracts me from to-do lists.

And whathaveyou.

Of course they say that admitting something is the first step in overcoming something and maybe I am not quite ready to overcome.

Before I tell you what I may or may not be obsessed with, can I just tell you I do not play games on my phone?

Occasionally I’ll play solitaire while on an airplane, but other than that… I don’t have time for games.

I have time for Facebook and Pinterest and Instagram and and and…

But no time for games.

Until my husband was all, “I think you’d really like this game?


I was all… “I don’t have time for games on my phone.”

“I have my Instagram. I am content with my life.”

And then, I almost felt like my husband was daring me and I was all, “OK FINE I’LL GET THE GAME BUT I’LL NEVER PLAY IT BECAUSE I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR GAMES.”

And now, as I drift off to sleep my brain moves tiles that go from 2 to 4 to 8 to 16 to 32 to 64 to 128 to…


Sometimes when I’m changing lanes I feel like I am a tile… doubling.

And then one day… I GOT TO 2048


You don’t believe me?

I play 2048


And I have discovered a real threat to my marriage… I am better at 2048 than my husband.

Oh. But apparently the game doesn’t really stop at 2048… now it tells me to get to the 4096 tile.


And that is my confession.

I play 2048.

I play a game on my phone.

(I still don’t play games on Facebook, though. With the exception of HEAD GAMES.)

(I digress.)

I usually play before I go to sleep. Or after lunch. And sometimes before I wake up the children.

And other stolen moments.

I have been known to play it while waiting to pick up children… and I will even swipe a few tiles while waiting in line at the grocery store if there is no one interesting to look at or talk to.

The end.

That is all I have to say.

It feels good to get that off my chest.
