When a demonic invasion requires your attention but you want to play doom
One person here is dealing with hellish demons that emerge, screaming, from a portal...
The other is playing Doom.
Psychologists could have a field day with this situation.
When your wife is in labor, but reddit karma is more important.
Give her a few hours without pain medications and you will see demons for real.
That laptop color scheme and red lights plus the mouse looks really good with doom slash screen.
Labor can be a looooooong process, though. You don't always just get to the hospital and then a baby pops out. Labor can last for hours and hours. Sine women I know were in labor for 13 hours or so before the baby actually arrived.
My husband did similar, just it was one of the GoT books. I was induced and with an epidural... so when actual labor finally started after five hours, he just stood there holding my hand and telling me to wait till he finished the chapter to make the call to the nurses’ station for help, barely looking up as my pleas became more frantic.
Somehow we’re still married... kid is over six years old now.
Seriously though, you spend like hours just hanging out, the whole birth of my first child thing was way more chill than I thought....well up until little dude actually decided to come out and say hi, that was intense as fuck.
But honestly wife woke me up at 3 am telling me her water broke, no traffic that time so a nice easy 10 min drive to the hospital, got there and got her checked in and literally just hung out all day playing on our phones and going on little walks, when finally came things got really intense for like 20 mins and then he was here and things were calm again...
That could be a-typical for all I know, my wife had the perfect delivery and pregnancy the whole time, no drugs, no complications, the whole thing was as perfect as it could be, she could have given birth in a tent in the wilderness and been ok, never even any worries about heart rate or any of that, dude was chill and even the whole time and his personality kinda reflects that, just a chill, laid back, take things as they come kinda kid .
