I play a lot of video games. Especially third-person action titles like Prince of Persia and Devil May Cry. And one move that seems to have gotten popular lately in action titles is the wall run.
The first time I ever saw a wall run was in the Matrix back in ’99. Watching Keanu own a pack of anonymous guards while bending the laws of physics was a blast, and it’s great to get to act it out in games.
It’s also great seeing Olive do it in real life. That’s right. Olive does wall runs in real life. She usually uses them to get the upper hand on Hazel while in pursuit. They seem to happen a little more frequently when company is over and she’s trying to show off. I’m not sure where she could have picked it up from, other than watching me play video games.
I can’t help but feel like I’ve failed a little as a parent. Violent video games ruined my kid. Er, cat. You get the idea.
