Will we get one?

Today is a very exciting day for me. I eagerly await some (I hope) exciting news from my husband. Alex and I received a Best Buy gift certificate for Christmas last year. Every time we are near Best Buy, we check to see if they have a wii in stock with no luck. At first I was patient. I'm an adult. I don't need games. I don't have time for games! I should be reading 10-Ks, research reports and the Wall Street Journal in my free time, not playing wii tennis! I should be thinking about the decline in US LIBOR and how it might help or hurt my investments, not holding up a fake steering wheel and pretending to drive go carts! I should be focusing on the price of oil and its impact on airlines and offshore drillers, not practicing my golf swing with Tiger Woods!

But I can't resist and my patience has run out. Alex and I have increased the frequency with which we check in on our local Best Buy  - we stop by, we call, I flirt with the nerdy guy who works in the video game department (I don't think he perceives it as flirting, though, I think he thinks I ask too many questions). And it all did nothing for us, bupkis, nada, diddly squat, until...last weekend a Best Buy employee told us that they should have wiis available on Sunday. 

I'm out of town, so I'm trusting Alex to go when it opens without me. Of course I can trust him. I'm pretty sure that I'm not the only member of our household who wants the wii. :) Keeping my fingers crossed...


  1. So did you play on the Wii all night long? Just wanted to say hello via your blog, let you know I was checkin' it out. It was so great to see you this weekend and I am looking forward to seeing you for the weddings this summer!

  2. I did! And as demonstration of my extreme lameness, I developed some sore muscles doing it. :)

    Thanks for the note. It was great to see you too!
