Sooooo, we are now on the Wii bandwagon. I know, I know...we are WAAAAY behind everyone else. Anyway, here's the story:
We have been wanting a wii for some time and finally we just decided to throw caution to the wind and get one. So...we called our local sellers and they were sold out! So, we called the next closest city...sold out. IN. ALL. THE. STORES! So, we checked online at every vendor we could think of...SOLD OUT! The next day (Jan. 1) Drew started calling around...he called a town 1 hour away...then an hour and half away...and then 2 hours away...and they were all sold out. The coup de gras is a vendor 3 hours away from our home. They had ONE Wii, but could not hold it for us. We weighed the pros and cons of traveling three hours from home.
-time possibly wasted
-a day potentially wasted
-can eat at Olive Garden (yummmmmm)
-get to spend time together
-could...on a fluke...obtain a Wii
So...we went. And we missed said Wii by 5 minutes, people. 5 stinkin' minutes.
We ate at the Olive Garden.
We drove home.
We laughed and enjoyed one anothers company.
The next day Drew was telling a co-worker what we had done the day before. His co-worker says "OH, I wish you said something before. I have a friend that bought a Wii a few months ago, played it once or twice, and realized they didn't want it. They have had signs all over the place trying to sell it!" Drew called me and I said "Take it!" So he did. And...we have our Wii. The people completely rewrapped everything and placed it back in the box exactly how it came when it was brand new.
So, then we bought another Wii remote. and a Nunchuck. And...Guitar Hero.
Oh yes we did.
And, just so you know... I Rock on Guitar Hero!
