For Christmas, we bought ourselves a Wii. We also got three games to go with it–Mario Kart, Mario Galaxy, and Wii Sports Resort. (If you recall, I played Wii Sports Resort so much at Christmastime that I managed to injure myself. Yep, that’s me.)
Anyway, we had heard about a new Super Mario Brothers game that had been released for the Wii, which is supposedly a remake of the original Mario games from way back in the days of Nintendo. We knew we would likely buy it eventually, but we weren’t in a rush for it.
Fast-forward to February and I decide to buy the game for Michael for his birthday. Neither of us are big gamers, but we enjoy the occasional video game. I thought Mario would be pretty cool, but anticipated that my husband would enjoy it far more than I ever would.
Um, wrong.I am practically addicted to this game! I have played way more than Michael has. It is so fun, and I am totally taken back to the days of sitting in front of a small TV and trying to save Princess Peach. The other day, I had to take a day off from my nightly hour or so of playing because my thumbs were too sore. MY THUMBS WERE TOO SORE, people. *sigh*
Oh, and have I ever told you that I have the ability to curse like a sailor? Well, if you didn’t know before, you certainly would if you watched me play Super Mario Brothers Wii. You really don’t want to know how many times the word “fuck” comes out of my mouth when I play. (I wonder what I used to say to express my frustration when I was only 7. It had to have been more socially appropriate, but surely it couldn’t have been as effective as “fuck,” right?) When I repeatedly screw up or am having trouble passing a level, I get so mad it is ridiculous. Remind me not to play video games with our future children.
Frequent playing, sore thumbs, excessive cursing–in other words, it’s a hell of a good game.
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 33 and have been married to Michael for seven years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
