I wonder now how I’d like to be a happy shopkeep in a Harvest Moon game. Maybe not a shopkeep, maybe the mayor or the doctor at the town hospital. The kind of character you make small talk with who becomes a regular yet insignificant part of your life. You don’t know anything about my personal life and take pleasure in that. And in my existence. And in the routine of my existence.
In exchange I get to be part of your existence.
