My Wii and Me


The scene has been set. The question is: To Buy a Wii or Not.

Reasons to buy a Wii:

1) The doctor said to help control my diabetes, I need to get back into the exercise mode.

2) Wii Fit is supposed to be a good series of exercises.

3) A friend has one and loves it!

4) I've been thinking about this for a very long time.

5) Spike is too old to walk everyday.


Reasons not to buy a Wii:

1) It's Black Friday, and no one has any.3)

2) They are expensive and if I don't use it, it's a waste of money.

3) The games are expensive.

4) I'm way to old for a child's toy.

5) I would need another controller and numchuck--more expense.

Decision:

1) Nick took me to a store that actually had them in stock.

2) Early Christmas present, to hell with the expense.

3) I like the dance game.

Bought the Wii.

1) I tried the Dance game, and I was soundly booed by the game. I'm insulted. Just because I'm not coordinated is no reason to boo someone, you stupid computer program.

2) I will try the dance game again, soon.

3) I love the Sports games!

4) I'm good at tennis.

5) I suck at bowling.

6) Baseball is BORING!

7) Not crazy about the golf.

8) I'M GOOD AT BOXING! I haven't lost a match yet. I have won all my matches by knockouts except for 2 which were decisions in my favor.

Nick took the picture of me boxing the first night. I boxed for an hour and a half. You do forget about the time. He wanted to box me, and we tried, but I was too tired. I had to quit, so, technically he won, but he really wouldn't have if I hadn't been so tired, so that match doesn't count.

End of Story.

Cripes Mallory - what do you need a numchuck for?? That sounds dangerous!!
LOL
My daughters have wii and love it, except for when it asked one of them if she fell over a lot because her balance was terrible ;)

Don't get over doing it!

Mallory, you look like you're having so much fun! I think it was a terrific present from Nick. Now, just so he visits again real soon and there's a re-match...remember, you are younger than your children. I think you can take him ;)

Hi, Ang, I guess I wasn't clear. Nick didn't buy the Wii for me. I bought one for him and for me for Xmas. Mine was the early present for me! rofl.
When he comes home for Xmas, I plan to knock him out many times at boxing!
