I am very excited!!
We have not really been looking to buy a Wii, but I had kind of joked about it every now and again. And I have friends who have been frantically looking for one. Seems they are very hard to find right now. Wonder if Nintendo has anything to do with that? Hmmmm....
Anyways, yesterday Chris and I were doing a couple last minute shopping things while we were in Boise. We stopped in EB Games, simply out of curiosity, and asked the clerk if they had a Wii. He paused, and then said they only had one left. Without really even thinking or asking Chris I said I would take it. Then he tells me, well the shipping box got messed up and as a result the Wii box got wet. He said he had checked it out and nothing inside was wet and everything checked out OK. Several people prior to us said they did not want it because of the wet box.
When we got home I checked it all out and nothing inside was even damp. I wonder how long that was sitting there. And all the stores, I have heard, are not getting any more until after Christmas. So, five days before Christmas we stumbled onto this little treasure. Needless to say, I am pretty jazzed. Then Chris told me, "Well, guess this is your Christmas present." She was a little excited as well. A little.
