Wii-Tard!

Okay. I have repeatedly admitted that I am very slow on the uptake when it comes to technology. I did not need to touch a computer until my early thirties; this should explain a lot.

So, for my birthday I received the Wii. I have attempted to play before with my niece who probably burned more calories laughing her ass off watching me fail miserably. What are Aunts for? Right Lil Wicked?

I am happy to announce that hooking up the contraption was very easy. I conquered making a Mii, I even named her Wicked H. All this with no help, I’ve come a long way baby!

I inserted the sports game disc, managed to bowl with no problems. Tennis, not so much. I tried and tried, the best I could do was serve. As for returning the ball either it bounced twice and the crowd booed or I hit the spectators square in the head. I think I should earn a quarter point for at least that, seriously. Can you all do that?

I just got off the phone with Lil Wicked. She may have a stitch in her side from the uproarious laughter. Apparently one needs no button while playing tennis. The fine folks at Wii do not mention this. Why is that?

In any case, I am off to conquer tennis with my condom encased Wii remote. Something Lil Wicked’s does not have.

Ha!

I'm sure I would have the very same problems. Good for you making the efforts. I will resist asking why the tennis raquet requires a condom.

Sophie: The comment made me snort liquid from my nose!!! Let me explain, the Wii remote comes with a covering which is designed to not slip out of your hand during vigorous Wii experiences - I think. Since Lil Wicked has had hers for years, her Wii remote has no such covering. Calling it a condom made her laugh uncontrollably. Always a huge bonus!!!

Lil Wicked said...

yes, I was quite diasapointed to discover that the wiimotes came with condoms, I had to step outside on an attempt to dodge a dirty look from the dad! I'm telling you though, I will make a breakthrough in videogame technology with the 40- and- over-wii!
Good luck, and remember to always use a codom!

I have to say that since I have no experience with condoms for tennis, I'll take your word for it.

Save your efforts for when they release the Star Wars game later this year.

You don't want to give yourself Lightsaber Elbow.

Wii rocks - and I am very video game impaired. But I do provide more laughter than exercise for my kids.

I just played Wii for the first time this past weekend (and wrote about it too :) )

Wii ROCKS!

Of course it is also a huge waste of time, but one can look past that.

What? The Wii is one of the most intuitive video games ever.

BTW we have removed the remote covering, but definitely use the wrist strap.

Be proud of yourself that you are not afraid to make an ass of yourself on the Wii - I think I might just be too uptight to even try it :P

Michelle said...

I thought maybe you needed a condom because tennis scores start out "love-love"? ;)

And hitting a spectator should be double points...

Wii is awesome! I highly recommend the Wii Fit as well.

Brian said...

Great, now I think I am officially the last person without a Wii. :)

t2ed said...

I want a Wii. But I'm old-fashioned. I expect them to actually have a product when I go to the store. I don't do treasure hunts for peeps who want my money.

Oh, and I tagged you. I'm an asshat that way.
