The kind peo­ple at Bliz­zard sent me an email to let me know that they

  1. miss me
  2. would like me to come back to par­tic­i­pate in WoW’s five year anniversary

They did this by offer­ing a 7‑day free revis­it­ing peri­od so that I could see all the new fun they’ve added. Some­thing about Onyx­ia being dual spec or something?

My wife and I often talk about return­ing to WoW. Our sec­ond daugh­ter is beyond the six-month mark, and we almost some­what have some time at night.

Return­ing sounds awful­ly tempt­ing, but we decid­ed that it was prob­a­bly not the best idea. Still so much to do apart from WoW: par­ent­ing, career, oth­er hob­bies, friends, exer­cise, oth­er fam­i­ly stuff.

But then she walked by when I had the email open.

“Is that an Onyx­ia whelpling minipet?”


Ohh­hh, well it’s a good thing that I did­n’t get an email, too.” Then she laughed ner­vous­ly.

Right, I mean lucky for us that they did­n’t extend the free week to her as well. We would­n’t play apart, so if they had offered… oh wait, there’s her email too.


I mean, free minipet, right?

It’s only one week, right?
