My husband and I play Super Smash Bros. together a lot. We started playing with Brawl on the Wii, then the one for the WiiU/3DS on the ship, and now Ultimate. All that playing, and I’m still not great at the game. At least with the newest installment, I’m doing more than mashing Down+B with Pikachu. I’ve been branching out with characters along with exploring combos. I have even legitimately won a few matches!
However, there is something about this game that really gets a rise out of me, and even though I lose a lot, I get so riled every time it happens. I am not good at a lot of games, but losing at this one really gets me for whatever reason. But I don’t want to shout insults at my husband, and I’ve been banned from yelling insults at myself. As a result, I have started coming up with insults for the characters we’re playing, and often it’s loud and vulgar. We haven’t been playing much because of the baby, but we recently set up a TV and dock in the basement, so we might start playing more.
This piece speaks for itself, and will likely go up by the TV as a reminder to both of us, I think.
It ended up being a bit bigger than I thought it would be, but that’s likely because I had 14 count available instead of the 18 count I originally intended. It was fun to stitch up, and I didn’t let my husband see the full message until it was done. He laughed, and I think he likes it.
