Every time that I have seen people playing DDR, they appear to be kinda frightening, obsessed people. I see the kids at The Stadium playing it, and they are so absorbed, almost transported by the game.

If you’re not familiar with it, DDR is a game. To greatly simplify the concept, dance steps are shown on the screen, and you have to do those steps on floor pads.

So, yesterday, when Sarah wanted to play DDR at The Stadium, I was very wary. But, she wanted me to play with her. What harm could it do, after all?

Well, a few minutes into the game, and, I hesitate to admit it, but I was hooked. How could such a stupid game be so fun? And a few more minutes into it, and I was doing *really* well at it. At the end of the game, I had something like 4 million points, and Sarah was dragging me off to do something else. I guess I can readily see how people could get hooked on it.
