his 40th birthday when we had the game of Thrones Birthday party? No, no, that wasn't his 40th. But I know what you mean. Yeah, the game of Thrones. On what? Game of 36th birthday. E apologize. Well, I just didn't want people. Yeah, whatever. Birthday I feel like it was such a momentous occasion. We had a game of Thrones themed birthday party. But it was like Mary Elizabeth House. Yeah, it was all out. Although, um, I was talking toe Liam that night, and he was like, Hey, do you play D and D? And I was like, No, I never played it, but I was like, my brother did, and, um, I was like, I've always been kind of curious about it. And, um, so we just had a little conversation about it, and that was the first. I mean, the trail of things that happened from last of us is so fucking crazy. Weird, huh? The very first home game because I still didn't know everybody that well. No, not at all. I knew Travis and Laura. I knew Liam because Liam also did a lot of voice directing on last of us. Yeah, he was. Actually, he taught me how to how you're supposed to sound when you scream when you're catching on fire. Yes, The proper burning. Yes. And so we asked that night. But then the game started. The game started for the very first game that they played or because I didn't know about the first game. And then I think Travis or Laura had talked to me and they were like, You've got to come, You gotta come play. And I was like, Okay, which at the time and as you know, was a huge, huge deal. I was so excited because I think I was getting a little bit more confident with hanging out with people and, you know, just hanging out in general with more than one person. And I was like, Okay, but I think I felt somewhat comfortable because it was something that I wanted to do. It wasn't like, Oh, we're going to go to a party or we're gonna We're gonna go to a club or not that anything is wrong with those things. But that's not comfortable. Zone. Um, I'll have a great time if I go, But dio um, it's not my it's uncomfortable. Thing was different. Yeah, And then I ended up going to the second game that they played. And I just remember, Matt, I've talked to Matt before and I was emailing with him, and he's like, Here's what's left of what you can play. You can play. Cleric, Um, what else was left? That was That was a couple of other things I remember you telling me because you were Tonto glasses. Yeah. What the fuck does this mean? Yeah, Cleric, Because I'll just give this a try, and, um, I was like, I'll be a gnome. I don't know, because that's kind of funny. And I went to the game and everybody was, like, doing voices and in character. And I was like, Oh, shit. Okay, on bond, I waas hooked. You came home like you had just done heroin for the first. Yeah, I had a cousin tried it, so I e yeah, you. That was a game changer freezing. But it also to showed you and I remember saying this to you at the time that it showed you what, like stuff you could miss out on if you Yeah. Yeah, because I lived many years of my life like that. A lot of my twenties was the hermit ing that you were going through in your late twenties. I did that for all of my drug years. And so I had known that thing, and I knew that. I knew the only remedy for that was relationships with people that would not only meet you where you were at, but that could help you just, like, not bully that transition from being super introverted and just hanging out home all the time toe, like going out doing stuff. And like I knew that that group of people you were in such good hands, I would get so excited because you guys only played once a month. It was so hard to schedule getting everyone together. Imagine I think about that. When we would play, we would have eight hours. Yeah, these games would be so long and so I would get home at 34 in the morning. I tried to explain to me what happened with the game was so crazy. You're like, Hey, I'm I'm like, Oh my God, it was But it filled something in me that I feel like nothing has been able to sort of feel that whatever that ISS and it's crazy to say that it's a Dungeons and Dragons. Yeah, no, but it's true. Everybody says the same thing in your chair. It's the I think because it's community based. And I feel like a lot of people in this community and even people that we meet a cons or things like that where we're all the fucking same, like we're all people that were kind of like have a lot of shit that, you know, we're all like a little introverted in a little weird. And we get in this world were like, Oh, this is where we're comfortable. Yeah, it's fine to play like I feel comfortable playing another character that sometimes gets to do things that were kind of cool or not so cool or you get to sort of it's a longer character are than any other projects
