Wii Play Wii
A few months ago we were invited over to our friends' house to play their new Nintendo Wii. It was so much fun that I finally convinced M that we needed one of our own. Luckily, we have another friend who has an "in" with a store and he was able to pick us up one. I don't know how many teenagers he had to fight for it, but we are glad he was up to the task.
Since the console only comes with one controller, I had to go buy another one. I went over to the mall to a game shop to see if they had one. Luckily, they had them in stock, but as I was trying to purchase one, I found myself on the receiving end of a 15 minute conversation from a 22 year-old female clerk about all of the new games that were coming out and all of the games she has played and is intending to play. All of the sudden I had this horrifying thought "Do I look like a "gamer"?" I guess I don't really want to know the answer to that question.
While I may not be up on all of the hottest new releases, M and I do enjoy the sports package that came with the console. We now resolve all of our marital disputes through Nintendo boxing. It's safer than the old way and now the police don't have to get involved.
