WE FINALLY GOT THE DAMN WII!!!!!
Chelle and I waited out at Best Buy last night to get the thing. We called ourselves, “Yetta and Inga”. Fits, no? Sadly, I wasn’t very prepared. The sleeping bag I grabbed was a youth sized one so I had to unzip it. It only left the tops of my legs covered so I had a ton of heat escaping from the bottom of my legs and chair. My butt was FROZEN. Thank goodness for handwarmers.
Chelle managed to fall asleep listening to her IPOD. There was no way I could have slept in that wet and cold, so I was stuck listening to the two 12-year-old boys ahead of us recite line-for-line EVERY SOUTHPARK EPISODE CREATED. Yah. Fun. I couldn’t even read because it was snowing too hard.
It would have been OK except for the snow. It kept getting everywhere and after two hours it started making all my layers wet. It was pretty miserable. I should have brought another blanket and better gear, but it wasn’t supposed to snow for another week at least and I would have been fine but for that.
No one else came in line after us and so I caved and went home. It took me a good hour to warm up again and I was glad I made the decision. Chelle the NON-WUSS who was much better prepared than I was went back after she dropped me off and waited. She is from sturdy pioneer stock, and everyone knows I am a freakishly weak wuss. Or as my sis-in-law Nooncy texted, “You are such a girl”.
It’s true. Sigh.Jonathan went back at 5 am and waited with Chelle’s hubby, John. He came back freezing, but victorious. My kids are freaking out! They only have one controller because there are NONE for sale in the valley, but they will live. I’m just sitting back and enjoying this moment. I also vow that I am never going to search for the impossible toy EVER AGAIN. Totally worth it, though.
