You wouldn't know it based on our usage over the past 6 months or longer, but we have a Wii gaming system. I probably haven't played with it for almost a year. Maybe not quite that long, but I don't remember playing it much while I was pregnant. Uncas used to play football a lot on it before a certain someone showed up. And then suddenly out of the blue last night after we had eaten dinner, I said to Uncas "Let's play some Wii!"
And we did!
First we played a few games of bowling (I won the first one and my very first ball I got a strike!! Uncas proceeded to win the second and third games). Then we decided to make a Mii* for Eddie (picture a short, fat, bald character smiling). And then Uncas decided he wanted to play tennis with Eddie. After watching a few games, I decided that I would play tennis with him - we like to play couples against the computer. I picked the Sammy Mii as my player (don't make fun of us - we made a Mii for our dog - so?!)
We had a lot of fun, although I was so tired - and that was playing tennis sitting down (the dog was cuddling with me - I couldn't get up!) It reminded me of how much fun it was to play with the Wii. I hope we do it again soon!
* for those of you who don't know, a Mii is a character that you create and use to play games on the Wii.
