My boyfriend is a little different than most. His name is Taira-kun. He's big and strong, though his arms are tiny. He's actually a Tyrannosaurus rex, but I don't seem to hold that against him. I'm all caught up in Jurassic Heart, an online dating simulator that pairs you up with an extinct beast for a love interest.
The sim gives you difficult choices to make, like which hair clip to wear before meeting your big lug. Naturally, the meat-on-the-bone hair clip is the one to go with. Cute and yummy.
According to the sim, Taira and I have a lot in common. We both like meat. We both play the ukulele (at least I do in real life), though it doesn't get into the specifics of how the necktie-wearing dino manages to play the tiny instrument. The sim takes you through meeting up with your carniverous heartthrob, buying a ukulele, eating grilled chicken in the park, and taking a romantic evening walk.
Though Taira is a big brute who could crush you in his massive jaws, he has a tender side. He's afraid of performing in front of people, which makes him endearing. He's very self-conscious about his tiny arms. Who knew flesh-rending thunder lizards were so sensitive?
There is an element of suspense to Jurassic Heart. It's possible to make the wrong choices and end up broken-hearted over your failed dinosaur love affair. Perhaps this is a glimpse into what the new "Jurassic Park" movie will look like. This time, Sam Neill falls in love with a velociraptor!
Whatever you're doing right now, it can wait. Close that spreadsheet, put down that report, make an excuse and leave the meeting early. Go play Jurassic Heart.
