“My boyfriend and I had our slightly delayed Christmas yesterday. After dinner, he told me that my present was in my World of Warcraft mailbox. So I logged on, said hello to Greatfather Winter, played with this year’s holiday racer, and wandered over to the mailbox. There was a note informing me that he’d gotten me a piece of gear, but it might need to be reforged and upgraded with valor later – just turn around if I wanted it. So I turned my character around, but I couldn’t find his little gnome anywhere. A second later, he tapped me on the shoulder in real life. He was holding a diamond ring.
