FIELDS OF MINE



Dealing with people is somewhat like playing Minesweeper.

The smooth grid is like people with their carefully hidden egos, insecurities, raw nerves, and complexes. Must tread carefully, for if you step on even one - *BOOM*!!!

There are Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert levels - but it is possible sometimes to embarass yourself even at the beginner's level. The screenshot here shows a Minesweeper game where I thought I got everything right - until - one mistake at the penultimate square *BA-BOOM*!!!

One big difference between relationships and Minesweeper, sadly, is that there's a perfectly logical way to win at Minesweeper.

Jeevan said...

It’s inevitable in this game, just to move or accept anything in life. I lose badly often in this game. Hope u r doing fine buddy :)

U bet! Wish life was all about player minesweeper!

and then you can always restart a game and can start from a clean slate...

Though life is a game to be played very cleverly...it cannot be swept under the carpet....lots of smart thinking required and no guarantee for success in any attempt.
Thats why games came in I guess....an illusion to what is life

Well, there's more than one difference I could think of :-D

1.With minesweeper, you can play as many games as you want.

2. You can use anybody's computer.

3. You can actually "watch" someone else's game without worrying about morality.
