The Queue: Friday Queueday

It’s the first Friday of 2022, and I hope you are all having a good one. I plan to celebrate the day with a nice nap in a sunbeam, like a cat. Except it’s supposed to be overcast, so there might not be any sunbeams. So maybe just a nap under a nice blanket. Naps are great, and I hope all of us have had a nice nap in 2022.

But let’s take a break from napping to answer some questions.

The Queue: So you wanna be a healer…

It’s not as glamorous as it sounds.

It’s actually more glamorous.

It’s a role that’s never dull, that requires constant focus, and if anyone annoys you, you can just let them die and run back without a rez. Or for those “blame the healer” parties, you can quit and let them spend another twenty minutes in the queue to get a replacement, reveling in your small, bitter victory over your critics.

Really, healing is a win all around.
