Little kid falls asleep in his toy car and ends up driving in circles

Yep, we totally understand you kid. Sometimes when the sun is beating down too hard and the day of fun has gone on a little too long and you're oddly comfortable in an uncomfortable position, you just fade away without a care in the world.

If life were a video game, it'd look exactly like this

When you're playing the game of life, you probably imagine it to be some impossibly complicated RPG filled with awful consequences and no right answer. You'd be wrong.
