Dōmo Arigatō, Mr. Super Mario

Dear Nintendo Corporation of America,

As a person who watches entirely too much television, I watch a lot of commercials every day. (Well, hypothetically, anyway.) In the run-up to Christmas, I saw shills for several thousand products, but I believe that only one did as advertised and brought our family together.

So, thanks for the Wii. We didn't get one for Christmas because we already had one, but we did get a lot of use out of it. My husband, father, and brother-in-law all have rotator cuff injuries from playing the Home Run Derby game. And we're actually going bowling for real later this week!

It's been so long since I've worn rented shoes, and I have the Wii to thank. Happy Holidays, Nintendo.



  1. I used to think DDR was the conduit from which peace would flow, but that has gone and passed.
    Now, if only all the world leaders could Wii together (teehee!), maybe the world would be a better place. At the very least, everyone would have rotator cuff injuries and feel too sore to do anything.

  2. Hahaha. Looks like it's just going to get "better," too, because we got a new Wii game that has ping-pong, billiards, and some kind of target shooting in it, and I will PWN, because I am the Queen of Duck Hunt. Feel my wrath! Bwahahaha!
